The guided tour of the city of Bosa is aimed to discover one of the most characteristic and charming towns in Sardinia, elected one of the most beautiful villages in Italy (borghi più belli di Italia).
Overlooking the river Temo, Bosa derives its charm from its happy position, with its colorful houses of medieval origin perched on the hill on whose summit stands the Castello Salvaterra or Malaspina, visible as in a fairytale landscape as soon as you arrive.
The charm of the riverside is combined with the beauty of the medieval churches that overlook the beautiful promenades.
The guided tour of the city of Bosa allows you to reconstruct its history through the anecdotes and characters that animated its ancient neighborhoods, the one dedicated to traders, the business street, the fishermen’s houses, the tanneries, the ancient Roman bridge , the old church of San Pietro in Romanesque style, the Cathedral, the medieval castle of the Malaspinas and the small church of Signora de Sos Regnos Altos, with its wonderful frescoes. You’ll be surprise by the the relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere that reigns in the beautiful places where you can taste the Malvasia wine and the excellent fish-based dishes of the Bosa cuisine.
The guided tour of the city of Bosa starts from the church of San Pietro, a splendid example of Romanesque architecture in Sardinia and the ancient hub of the first settlement of Bosa, of Phoenician and then Roman origin. Next, near the church of Sant'Antonio Abate, we will take the Ponte Vecchio, immediately enjoying a splendid view of the city as a whole, while it is reflected in the river Temo. We will then arrive on the north bank of the river from which we will be able to admire the view of the ancient leather tanneries, dwelling on their history. A little further on we will come across the facade of the Co-Cathedral of Bosa, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which we will visit, admiring the frescoes by Emilio Scherer from Parma. After we will climb through the scala de 'sa rosa up to the slopes of the Serravalle Castle. If open, we will visit the castle and the church of Nostra Signora de Sos Regno Altos with the beautiful frescoes from the end of the 1300s. Walking on the bastioned walls of the castle we will be able to enjoy a splendid view of the city of Bosa, the long river and the mouth of the sea.
We will then descend through the narrow streets of the Sa Costa district, with its ancient narrow multi-storey colored houses, to arrive in the equally suggestive area of the old warehouse dedicated to traders in via Corte Intro, to arrive in via Piatta, now Corso Vittorio Emanuele, where you can find the clubs of the Bosan nightlife, the Malvasia road, and visit the medieval churches of the Madonna del Rosario and della Croce.
