Sardinia’s colourful village
Bosa is one of the most beautiful and picturesque villages in Sardinia. It is located on the north-west coast of the island, along the banks of the River Temo, the only navigable river in Sardinia. In fact, you can sail up the river for about 5 km to the ancient ruins of the Roman bridge.
Dominated by the castle of the Malaspina family, around which the tall, colourful houses of the historical district of Sa Costa cling, you’ll fall in love with Bosa, its narrow streets and stairways, the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) and its hill from which you can admire the entire coast.
Bosa is also a place of traditional craftsmanship and food and wine. Here you can taste the famous malvasia, one of the most popular Sardinian sweet wines. There are also many shops specialising in the working of coral, gold filigree and thread, or the art of embroidery.
And then there are the old tanneries that bear witness to how Bosa was an important centre for the production of leather from the middle of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, a story that has been collected and told in the Conce museum.
