Castelsardo and the marina

Castelsardo (Sardinia, Italy) is located on the NW coast of the island. It was founded by the Genoese in the 12th century and the castle and medieval street layout date from this period.

Its conspicuous Cathedral of Sant'Antonio Abate dates from the 17th century. The town is known as a centre of basket-weaving as well as hosting a small fishing fleet.

The marina of Castelsardo is about a mile SW of the town.

Transportation

Tourism

The village of Castelsardo is a 2km walk from the marina and is worth the effort (otherwise take a bus!). The mediaeval, walled village is perched on a steep hill, with narrow, cobbled and pedestrianised streets. The cathedral has some interesting exhibits in the crypt, including several paintings by the 15th century unknown 'Master of Castelsardo'. The Church of Santa Maria in the centre of the village contains an unusual, 14th century Crucifix known as the “Black Christ”.
