Take a walk through the old city Sa Costa and watch the women knitting their famous ‘Filet di Bosa‘. Taste the typical and world wide famous wine Malvasia. It is offered in almost every bar. But if you find a wine cellar in the old town, go there. Today Bosa lives mainly off of agriculture and tourism. Since 2005 the town is part of the province of Oristano. Bosa is situated at the beautiful westcoast of Sardinia within reach of two airports (Alghero, Olbia).
