Description

Protected for more than 150 kilometers between the two seas that have shaped its morphology and history, Salento has a highly evocative and enchanting coastal development. The Ionian coast is characterized by lower cliffs and stretches of sand, red soil and vineyards, interrupted by sixteenth-century towers and equipped beaches.

Stories of barbaric raids give the name to the individual locations: Torre dell'Omo Morto and Torre Marchiello, Torre Vado, Torre Pali, Torre Mozza and Torre San Giovanni, Torre Suda, seaside resorts that combine natural beauty with history and culture of the hinterland, making this strip of peninsula a formidable tourism to live fully in every season of the year. “Paiare” and dry-stone walls dot the coast until the Ionian unveils in all its splendor Gallipoli, the “beautiful” city (“kalè polis”, in Greek), apparently an island in the sea, with the dazzling domes of its churches. Rightly famous, Gallipoli is, with Lecce, with Otranto and Leuca, one of the wonders of the Mediterranean and deserves a prolonged stop. The medieval village, the winding and narrow alleys that burst into the houses, the ramparts, the castle, the churches, the Greek fountain remodeled in the Renaissance, the baronial buildings are an attraction. Lido Conchiglie, an expanse of dunes, the spectacular Montagna Spaccata, and it is now the coast of Nardò: Santa Maria al Bagno, already famous for its thermal baths and the Roman port, a pleasant seaside resort, and Santa Caterina, protected by the “Torre of the High” which dominates it from the “Destro's dirupo” and from the homonymous tower of the XVII century.

Remarkable in this area is the Portoselvaggio Nature Park, with the Grotta del Capelvenere and the Grotta di Uluzzo, while the waters of the Uluzzo Bay are inviting and transparent, with prehistoric archives in the caves of Cavallo and Uluzzo. To remind us of times of perennial alarms and incursions, here again the towers are on the scene. From Torre Inserraglio, Torre Sant'Isidoro and Torre Squillace, to the superb Torre Porto Cesareo and Torre Chianca (Porto Cesareo), the coast follows a knotty pattern, intercalated by coves and small inlets with very pure waters. Porto Cesareo is a very important tourist center, with 17 kilometers of equipped beaches overlooked by an archipelago of islets, the best known of which is the Isola dei Conigli.
