Visit the castle and the historic buildings of Salento
Those who choose holidays in Puglia between Oltranto and Gallipoli are never disappointed because it offers experiences suitable for everyone; the enchanting sea, white beaches and relaxation but also sports, culture and entertainment.
These cities with a thousand-year history and unique landscape are united by an ancient village built of historic buildings, white to reflect the light of the sun or stone, between the narrow streets with hanging clothes, prickly pears and geraniums. In some of these places you will find our luxury hotels, beautiful hotels set in the Salento landscape.
Relais Corte Palmieri, Hotel Palazzo del Corso, Palazzo Mosco Inn in Gallipoli and Relais Valle dell’Idro in Otranto are our unique and unmistakeable hotels, designed to offer you all the taste of Salento in one room. Built in historic buildings restored with elegance and respect, our spaces are designed to offer an unforgettable holiday in the most fascinating and youngest cities of Salento.
Gallipoli and Otranto also have in common magnificent castles overlooking the sea, two giant guardians of the coast, dating back to the fifteenth century at the time of great kings and knights, now used as important museums and cultural centres. Both castles have hosted and still host international exhibitions and conventions: even Andy Warhol has set foot inside their walls!
A castle fills a holiday with charm, so you cannot miss this opportunity to dive for a swim and then go back and immerse yourself in history.
From 1 June to 11 November, the Castle of Gallipoli will host the exhibition “#Selfati”, an original exhibition of self-portraits, between pop culture and art, while at the Castle of Otranto Oliviero Toscani is hosted with more than one hundred of his photographs, until 14 June, following by a beautiful exhibition of evocative images on the theme “Pareidolìa: look beyond what you can see”, until 30 October.
