Full description
See the main sights of the fortress city of Gallipoli on the tip of the Salentina Peninsula, and discover one of the most important locations in Apulia. Meet your guide on the Corsa Roma, and set off for the Fontana Greca next to the castle. Once thought to be the oldest fountain in Italy, the Greek Fountain features 4 caryatids below the architrave and was inspired by the classical architecture of Ancient Greece. Next, cross the bridge that connects the Old Town to the new city center, and enter the heart of Gallipoli, protected by the imposing 13th-century Angevine-Aragonese Castle, built by the Byzantines. Stroll from Via Antonietta De Pace to the cathedral dedicated to St. Agatha, who was martyred in the Sicilian city of Catania, but whose relics are housed in Gallipoli. Peek inside to see ornate decorations of marble, wood, and paintings. Continue along winding streets, admiring typical houses, before you reach the coast, where numerous 13-17th-century churches can be found, including the Church of Santa Maria della Purità, Church of St. Francis of Assisi, and Church of San Domenico al Rosario.
