The Ionian coast is characterized by low cliffs, stretches of sand and signal towers. Porto Cesareo is definied “Caraibi” for the colour of the sea and its golden beaches. Along the road leading to St. Caterina you meet the naturalistic Park of PortoSelvaggio; its pine-wood reflects its green in the sea. Beetween S. Caterina and S. Maria al Bagno, there is a place called “Cenate” where are many elegant villas. “The four columns” are the remains of an ancient watch tower in St. Maria al Bagno. Through the “split mountain” you reach Lido Conchiglie and then immediately Gallipoli. The beautiful city, in greek “Kalè Polis” is an island in the Ionan Sea, famous for the production of olive oil. Worth a visit the church dedicated to St. Agata, the Greek Fountain and the church of Purity embellished with paintings by L. Riccio. After an interesting walk we suggest you to taste delicious almond pastries called “Divini amori”. Along the coast you meet many beach resorts and Ugento ( famous Messapian center). Its archeological remains are kept in the museum. Then you reach the heel of the boot: S. Maria di Leuca (de finibus terrae) where the two Seas meet.
