lecce-chiesa

Most of the buildings and churches in town date back to XVII century and were built in a distinctive fine architectural style that can be found nowhere else in the world and is known as "Barocco Leccese".

This particular kind of Baroque architecture is characterised by the neat and elegant forms of the Renaissance style and rich decoration, such as banisters, traceries, tortile columns, flower and fruits motifs, deriving from the peasant culture and the classical world.

They are carved out of the characteristic "pietra leccese", a light and easily worked limestone that skillful carvers turned into real masterpieces, which look like finely crafted filigree jewelry or pieces of embroidery.

Bari e dintorni

bari-lungomare

Located on the Jonian coast of Basilicata, where the sea is completely unpolluted, the Hotel is just 250 metres from the beautiful sandy beach of Policoro, and it is bordered by a wide pine forest that stretches all along the coast. With its exercise paths and cycle tracks, running for several kilometres, this pine forest is the ideal place for all those who like to exercise while being immersed in nature.

Sun and beach, however, are far not the only attractions of this area, which is reach in culture and history, as witnessed by the remains of the archaeological park of Siritide National Museum in Policoro. The Regional Nature Sanctuary of Bosco Pantano is a great example of wetland forest stretching to the sea. Its tangled beauty can only be accessed through trails.

Here, different species of animals can be seen, such as the otter and the caretta caretta turtles that lay eggs on these shores. On the borders of the forest there is a WWF wild animal rescue centre.

Taranto - A Town of the Sea

taranto pontegirevole

The symbol of Taranto is the great Rotating Bridge. It connects the new town to the island where the old town is, over the canal that links Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo.

The bridge is dedicated to St. Francis from Paola; it was built in 1958 to replace a wooden bridge dating back to 1886.

The navigable canal was digged in 1481 to protect the town from Turkish attack. The Rotating Bridge is periodically opened to let military ships go through.

From the sea, the old town looks enchanting, especially at night, when street lights emphasize the contour of the so-called "palazzata", that is the old palazzos, where noble families and the clergy once used to live.
