Located in the Lecce province, Otranto is one of Puglia’s most vibrant towns. Its pedestrian-only historic center is home to a handful of lovely shops with regional handicrafts, as well as a stunning cathedral and charming restaurants. Don’t miss a walk along the promenade, which looks out over the glistening Adriatic Sea. Take in the 15th-century castle and don't miss a visit the 11th-century cathedral with its impressive mosaic floor.
