An interesting building of varying ages which is by the narrow lanes of the historic area. Mostly tourist shops there although a few artisan shops of interest.

Lovely views from the top and a fascinating exhibition about finds from a nearby grotto. Great to stroll around and get a feel of times past.

Great vibe bright and not too crowded in September. Lots of interesting shops to spend you money especially if you are looking for souvenirs. I would recommend a car park about 10 min walk away especially if you don't fancy parallel parking in a hire...More

When in Otranto you can't miss this in the core of the old town. Amazing! As if it had been built yesterday. Great athmosphere. Take a stroll along the Corso, it's romantic in the evening, when the locals dress up for the gita.

The castle is full of explanations and information which are in Italian. Luckily, there is audio guide in English. However, audioguide is a ridiculous summary of what the info or the Italian guide says. I spent €15 for Castle and Subterranean Tour which is the...More

The 12 euros seemed a little steep for what was there at the castle. The artwork, including some Caravaggio paintings were worth seeing and the views from the castle were very impressive. Otranto is a lovely town and it looked its best from the top...More
