The lightly trod jewel of Puglia
By now you've heard of Puglia, but have you heard of Salento?
At first glance we could characterize Salento in three words: Sun, Sea, Wind. All true. The sun illuminates the colors of the landscape. The coastlines - sandy and rocky - are extensive and eliminate discontent. The sea breeze propels the waters. But there's much more.
The sun, the sea, and the wind are there together with a rich history embedded within the landscapes, the olive groves, and vineyards.
In Salento, you can follow an itinerary tracing back to a distant yet remarkable time in history: from the Messapian and Roman, to the Byzantine, Norman, Sicilian, Bourbon Arabian, and Spanish. Every small town preserves beautiful churches and noble palaces that enchant with astonishing architecture.
Salento is a cradle of art and culture. Discover it with us.
