Full description
Santa Cesarea Terme is a small town of about 3,000 people built on a large cliff overlooking the sea about 50 km south of Lecce. It is a renowned seaside resort and its tourism is also based on the spa with water springs with sulfurous properties, which flow from four natural cavities.

The guided tour will begin along the coast and stop at the viewpoint. Then carry onto Caicco Beach Resort overlooking the rock, visiting villas with orientalist architecture and liberty style. Discover Villa Sticchi, the symbol of Santa Cesarea Terme, built in 1885 with well-marked Moorish lines along the coast and its large dome above the spa. The façade is articulated over two floors, connected by a double flight of stairs culminating into a large loggia with a three-light window, in Lecce stone.

You will then visit Villa Raffaella, built on the main avenue in the mid-nineteenth century which takes its name from the Baroness Raffaella Lubelli who had it built as a summer residence. The façade is majestic and develops harmoniously through the skillful layout of the lines, such as the large balustrade supported by arches on columns. See the characteristic octagonal tower with floral motifs.
