A meeting place between western and eastern culture, an ancient crossroads of trade with the East, the city of Otranto is one of the most enchanting places in Salento. Otranto rises from the eastern tip of Italy and overlooks a beautiful gulf that bears the name of the city. But Otranto is not only an enchanting maritime destination: the city preserves precious testimonies of its past and a rich artistic heritage. During your holiday in Otranto, take a stroll through its historic centre, just 800 meters from the Basiliani.
