Otranto is a small seaside town in the extreme eastern point of Italy. Due to its ideal geographical position, Otranto has always been the place where different civilisations, cultures and traditions have come into contact. If you go walking in its historic centre, you can easily discover its ancient origins by admiring its Messapian, Greek and Roman architectural testimonies.
Far from the noisy and polluted industrial areas of Italy, nowadays Otranto keeps on looking East. This heavenly place, where it seems time has stood still, shows the traces of an ancient history on both its land and its extraordinary people's faces. Don't give up the pleasure of enjoying the unique atmosphere of this enchanting town!
Otranto, a town rich in waters, where even the majestic walls which fortify it may tell you stories of past civilisations; where its ancient monuments cherish the memory of bygone echoes which don't want to leave this place praised by poets and writers; where its wonderful sea spumes amid the rocks – a shelter for gulls – and its delightful beaches become bright with dancing fires in summer moonlit nights; where travellers and dreamers hope to go back home enchanted and fascinated by the history and legends of this picturesque and evocative place. Otranto: a bridge between the West and the East, a bridge between reality and dream.
From the cliffs of Frassanito to Porto Badisco – where Virgil imagined Aeneas's landing place, passing by the lakes of Alimini and the evocative bays and beaches of Baia dei Turchi and Orte, the beautiful coastline is full of quaint natural landscapes embellished by towers and manor farms hidden in the olive groves or the luxuriant Mediterranean scrub.
