The port is dominated by Torre Aragonese, defensive tower created by the Spanish but the city centre features little else of interest. The Roman remains in Parco Archeologico include a Roman bridge. The so-called Palazzo del Re Barbaro, was the public bathing facility of the Roman city. Basilica di San Gavino is the former cathedral, dating from 11th and 12th centuries. It is one of the most notable churches in Sardinia. South of Porto Torres is Monte d'Accoddi temple, built around 3000 BC. Eastwards cruisers can visit 12th century fortress town Castelsardo with its amazing cliff top views over mountain and sea. Nearby is Sassari, Sardinia's 2nd largest city and site of two 13th-century Romanesque churches.
