The sun over the Baroque churches and palaces revokes the Sicilian Island, while castles create visions of Normans, Anjou and Aragonese troops. If you find a Masseria on a land you will sense Spanish sounds; not far, you will find the Arabic design of Villas, which reminds you of the visit of the Arabs and Saracens, which were sometimes not that peaceful. The crystal clear water of the sea makes you feel in Greece, which is over there.. actually not that far.
History, colours, dramas, the life in the Mediterranean Sea, “finibus terrae”, a suggestive mix of sacred and profane... It is where you can see the first sunshine of the New Year.
This is Salento, a territory which has become a new brand. A very loved one, which has been able to evaluate its heritage, landscape, food, architecture, handwork, music, art, in one word: its culture.
This is why we Southern and Salentinian operators would like to share with you an experience of identity. We would like to listen to you and make you participate in our narratives. We would like to show you our professionalism, competencies and all our passion behind the creation and care of our attractions: our food, rosé wine, Taranta, visual arts, cinema, natural parks and ecosystem which are able to connect a population who follows its tracks coming from the past and going into the future.
