Gallipoli – in the crystal-clear blue sea

The “beautiful” town of Gallipoli (from the Greek Kallipolis: meaning “beautiful city”) is a fishing village and stands on the Ionian coast, in the magic Salento region. The intriguing old town is built on a limestone island and linked to the mainland by a 16th-century bridge. Fishing boats still use its harbours, meaning plenty of fresh seafood and waterfront dining.
It’s incredibly scenic and a pleasant place to go through its maze of lanes, with its elegant baroque architecture facing the sea.
An authentic seafaring town Gallipoli: in the centre, and accessible thanks to a staircase, we find the beach of Purità, with the waves that look like turquoise brushstrokes.
Then an intricate maze of streets, dating back to the Greek period, intersecting, breaking the spiral of the winds, and dotted with a parade of historic buildings and terrific sea views.
Surrounded by water, its identity is inextricably linked to the rhythms of the sea – fishers fixing nets or doing repairs after their early morning outings are still common, seafood is a feature on most menus.
It is imperative to go to the vibrant fish market, located in the original moat of the imposing Castello Angioino (XVI c.) – a fortress almost surrounded by the sea.
Sunsets in Gallipoli are spectacular, and they are best savoured with a bottle of local wine and olives.

It’s a perfect base to explore the Salento region of Puglia, where the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea and Adriatic sea converge, and the picturesque sandy beaches spread all along the coast: Porto Cesareo, Porto Selvaggio, Santa Maria di Leuca, Santa Cesarea Terme, and Otranto.
