Monte Altura Fortress
At the entrance of Porto Rafael is located the beautiful and unique usable fortress of the Sardinian coast, the Fortress of Monte Altura. This fortress, which at the time of its construction (1887-1889) held the title of “Europe’s most beautiful fortress”, can be admired from the houses of Ginestra and Erica and offers a splendid view of the Archipelago of La Maddalena, of Corsica and the Bocche di Bonifacio. Today the Fortress is open to the public who can visit it through guided tours and in its spectacular scenery, cultural events and concerts are organized on summer evenings. The Fortress also houses the interesting permanent exhibition dedicated to the numerous fortresses built at the end of the 18th century in the so-called “fortification period”
