HISTORY AND BACKGROUND of Torre Dell Orso
The name derives from the presence of a tower of the sixteenth century (the Tower Dell'Orso) used (like all the towers on the coast of Salento) in the past to sight the ships of Turkish, Saracen and pirates, sailing towards Salento. According to some hypotheses, orso (bear), refers to the monk seal (mammal known to inhabit the area, the latest sightings date back to 1970). More likely would be attributable to Urso, the surname of the probable former owner of the agro. According to another interpretation, that the coastal towers are usually names of saints, its' name was said to be Tower of St. Orsola, then Torre dell'Orso. Another argument is given by the fact that under the tower is a rock that abstractly represents the profile of a bear (looking at the beach, with the tower on your left, you will see a rock formation representing the profile of a bear with the nose and ears well defined). Over the years the erosion of weathering,made the appearance change, but it is still clearly visible. Recent studies have proven that the bay, in the past, was the port of the ancient temple town of Roca, and was a key stopover for sailors who came or went from and to the other side of the Adriatic Sea. In particular, the route that connects the 'bay the Valley of the Bear' in Albania, and the bay of Torre dell'Orso, is the shortest path (80 km) that the sailors could do.
