Sardinian Coral


2 reviews of Sardinian Coral

Coral of Cerdeña

In the fourteenth century, the Aragonese, ve had just conquered Sardinia, found the rich marine flora of the island. Alghero became a landmark, as the place to catch coral. At first, rudimentary methods were used for fishing, marring the seabed and this considerably decimated the amount of coral that was in the Sardinian coast. Now, more respectful and specialized methods are used, using experienced divers. In Alghero you can see lots of jewelry made of coral.


Watch for the official sign in the shops.


Red coral is found 90 to 100 meters under water and hand collected.
