What to see in Apulia?
Our beautiful nature reserve. Guaceto is the largest of the typical Kingdom towers in Terra d’Otranto. Now the symbol of the Torre Guaceto State Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area, the building is home to a historical-archaeological exhibition that offers visitors a journey back in time some 2000 years. In addition to the reconstruction of Roman boats, the exhibition allows visitors to observe the beautiful landscape that surrounds it: unspoilt nature and crystal clear sea. It can be discovered through bike trekking and scuba diving. Sail in the crystal clear sea thanks to the sailing club, where you can take catamaran, sailing and windsurfing lessons.
Red Bull Cliff Diving
Those who follow the Red Bull world cannot fail to know Polignano a Mare, or the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, which has hosted no fewer than eight editions of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, ready to host a ninth edition. The international freefall diving competition attracts thousands of spectators. Divers jump from a platform between 26 and 28 metres, performing unique acrobatics. The village is divided into charming alleyways that host numerous other lesser-known but not-to-be-missed events.
The night of the taranta in Melpignano (Lecce)
It is an event focused on a particular genre of popular music from Puglia: the pizzica, a dance whose accelerated movements are originally attributed to the bite of the tarantula. It normally takes place in the last week of August, with an average of 120,000 spectators. For fans of this dance, it is an event not to be missed, but even the less experienced will not remain indifferent to the charm of the taranta.
During your stay in our beautiful Apulia you will come across typical festivals in honour of the local patron saint. During these events, you will get to know the cultural customs of the place. The history of these villages will captivate you, involving you completely in the romantic atmosphere of our villages.
Apulia is continuous discovery, astonishment, breath, among the sea, promontories, olive trees, trulli, farms, churches, castles, alleys, dry-stone walls, wild lands, unlimited horizons and unforgettable sunsets.
