Moon over the Torre di Sulis
Whereas the other towers in this series are outside modern urban areas, the Torre di Sulis lies along the seawall of Alghero. It was built by the Spanish in place of an earlier Genovese tower. Originally known as the Torre de l’Esperó Rejal, this tower has come to be known as the Torre di Sulis after Vincenzo Sulis, a rebel against Piemontese rule, was imprisoned there for twenty-one years in the early Nineteenth Century.
This is the final photo in the series “Spanish Towers in Sardinia.” I hope that you have enjoyed it! I’ll start a new series next week.
