Let’s talk about Salento

Salento, the heel of Italy, is nestled in the clear waters of the Adriatic and Ionian coasts, where tall cliffs sculpted by the sea alternate with sandy beaches, green stretches of maquis and a small “eden” reachable only by boat.

A journey through the Province of Lecce will take visitors from prehistoric civilizations, through Medieval architecture and to the masterpieces of the Baroque architecture of the city of Lecce, via ancient traditions and the skills of master craftsmen.
All this then, is seasoned with the intense and genuine flavors bestowed by the generous terrain.
The province is a living history book, where the chapter devoted to the Middle Ages is recounted by the ancient villages and imposing castles; and that to the Renaissance, by the manor houses that, although to a lesser extent, recall the splendor and elegance of the capital.

The gastronomy is as varied as the landscape: oils, wines, cheeses, vegetables and fresh pasta are reminders of the delicious flavors of the past, achieved thanks to the handcrafted processing of raw materials.
