Old Town is a lot of fun to walk through, lots of unique shops for jewelry and clothes. The castle is interesting as well as the Basilica. The views and atmosphere are beautiful, you should plan on just about a full day really, enjoy!

Beautiful historic place! Lots of lovely little shops and nice restaurants. Otranto has a long interesting history. It’s a must see when visiting Salento.

A very nice surprise to visit this well maintained, full of life, medieval town centre. A must see! Shops, restaurants, fortress, architecture, narrow streets and great open spaces... You want to see it and spend half day and evening there!
