Salento, land between Occidental and Orient, place of tradition and culture, art and folklore, sea and nature. You can taste Salento by strolling through natural scenery, “messapici” and “barocchi” ruins observing every little detail with extreme curiosity, enjoying enchanted sunsets with colors and scents.
The major attractive is the clear and transparent sea. Salento is characterized by beautiful and varied coastline, dreamy beaches and amazing cliffs. The Adriatic coast is mostly defined by rocks, high cliffs, small beaches and golden beaches such as those of Otranto, Torre dell’Orso.
The Ionian coastline is predominantly defined by long sandy beaches sometimes alternate from small paradisiac cliff such as Torre San Gregorio - nearby Santa Maria di Leuca, Punta della Suina - Gallipoli area.
