The town of Lecce is known for its wealth of monuments, many of them made in the typical baroque Lecce. Its origins are lost in time, but to demonstrate the ancient importance, are still visible evidence of Roman and messapica. The presence of many religious orders to the many diets home churches, and monuments. Lecce is the capital of Baroque, it has little to share with the architectural style of any other part of the world.

The Baroque of Lecce is linked to a secret all his: that the unique quality of Lecce stone, a soft limestone, whitish or yellowish, easily workable in that hardens and becomes over time a warm golden colour. The city centre is enclosed in walls dating back to the sixteenth century.

Gallipoli 'the pearl of the Ionian' overlooks the Ionian coast, west coast of the Salento peninsula. The town of Gallipoli is divided in two parts, the 'Borgo' and the Old Town. The Hamlet is the most recent part of the city, built on a peninsula that extends on the Ionian coast to the west, which includes all new construction.

The Old Town, however, is located on an island of calcareous origin, linked to the mainland by a seventeenth-century arched bridge. Among the many treasures of art which can boast of the city of Gallipoli, one can not but recall the Basilica of Sant'Agata, the Fountain of Greece.

Otranto, beautiful seaside town located on the canal the same name, is the capital Salentine about 40 km. Its economy is centred on tourism and could not be otherwise, given its place in the territory, the extraordinary beauty of its beaches and the many pages of history of the city in time was the protagonist. The old town offers the visitor, looking for emotions he set for narrow streets, paved with stones of flint, views and angles suggestive. Otranto also extends beyond the walls of the historic city, the city form a kind of bay in the other end are the port, with the castle and the ancient ramparts.

The city is also rich in monuments such as the Aragonese Castle, the Cathedral of Otranto, in which one can admire the mosaic pavimentale.Pochi kilometres north of the city on the coast, we find the Alimini Lakes and Bay of Turks, of great scenic interest.

S. Maria di Leuca, called 'the white city', with its caves, its sanctuary, and the friendliness of its inhabitants. Certainly one of the most beautiful and inviting the salento, Santa Maria di Leuca is known for the head location that divides the Ionian Sea dall'Adriatico. The most important monument to visit the Sanctuary of Santa Maria di Leuca, dating from the first century AD, located in the upper part of the city, where you can reach by car, which through a long stairway that leads in front of the Shrine.

From this square you can also see the splendid scenery of the coastline view from above, and in certain weather conditions, the mountains of 'Albania.
