Housed in an elegant Art Nouveau villa from the early twentieth century, the MACOR | Coral Museum, recounts the intimate bond that unites Alghero to its territory and explores the history of the Mediterranean Sea through one of the main resources of the territory: the Corallium Rubrum.

Why is it important to visit it
One of the few Art Nouveau villas that can be visited in the city, a protected historical asset, still preserves the internal division of the rooms as a single-family home, maintaining the original decorative elements, thus allowing the visitor's imagination to be stimulated on the scenes of daily life that took place in that residence. A museum within a museum, where MACOR was created to make known, deepen, discover and rediscover tradition and culture and always keep alive the historical memory of the city.
