It's worth the walk up to the top of the Citadel just for the views alone. There's a small museum, which we didn't visit, and a selection of cafes and restaurants, some with outside tables offering views across the bays.

Must visit in Sardegna, best views with restaurants, bars and gift shops. But the museum is poor. About an hour drive from Alghero.

Worth visiting if you have half day, the citadel offers stunning views. We have visited the place in the afternoon but did not have enough time to wait for sunset which I think will be awesome.
