Best things to do and places to visit for Gallipoli

Gallipoli is among the favorite destinations of Salento. Facing the Ionian Sea, it is divided into two parts: the village and the historic center, connected by a bridge. The old town in Gallipoli is surrounded by defensive walls. A particular architectural aspect that, together with its coastal beauty, makes it a long loved destination.

The historic center is a sort of small island on the water, it is worth a visit to walk along its alleys, antique palaces, and Baroque churches, white and blue houses, and typical local bars and restaurants where you can try the flavors of the Pugliese cuisine and fresh fish.

Be sure to visit Castello Angioino-Aragonese, Fontana Greca, Cattedrale di Sant’Agata, and other fantastic churches like the Church of San Francesco where you can see the wooden statue of “malladrone”, a great work of art.

You can relax on the Spiaggia della Purità beach and, if you want to admire the view from a different point of view, go to the panoramic street called La Riviera which surrounds Gallipoli and gives you a view of the coast. Among the natural beauty there is the Sant’Andrea Island, the Isoletta del Campo, and the cliffs of Lo Scoglio dei Piccioni and Lo Scoglio della Nave, close to the old town.
