The historical centre of Gallipoli is certainly one of the oldest ones in Salento. It is situated on an island of calcareous origin and is characterized by an intricate labyrinth of alleys, rich in art and culture.  It is not by chance that its name “Gallipoli” comes from Greek and means “Beautiful Town”. Along the narrow streets, it is possible to admire amazing historical buildings and many Churches, some of them are of Baroque style, such as the imposing Cathedral of Saint Agata and the Church dedicated to St.Francis from Assisi.
An original and attractive urban layout, enchanting for the succession of its architectural styles, kissed by a radiant sun and bathed by a crystal clear sea.
