Location


The town of Casarano is located in south-western Salento, 45 km from Lecce, the provincial capital, and 15 km from the Ionian coast. Its location allows easy access to the various towns of interest in the entire province of Lecce and, in particular, the famous seaside towns of Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca and those of Maglie, Nardò and Galatina up to enchanting Lecce, all easily reachable along the highway. Casarano offers its visitors various historically interesting spots, above all the Crypt of the Crucifix, a natural hypogeum transformed into a place of worship by the Byzantines in the 11th century, with, nearby, the ruins of the old monastery that belonged first to the Basilian monks and then to the Olivetans and which represents an important prehistoric, historical and naturalistic site; the Mother Church, built in the typical early 18th century Lecce Baroque style, is dedicated to Maria SS. Annunziata. Its elegant façade is characterised by a balustrade and by the presence of three niches, the first of which, central and above the portal, conserves the statue of San Giovanni Elemosiniere; the others, at the sides, conserve the statues of Saints Peter and Paul. Speaking of which, the cult of the patron saints of the town is particularly felt: San Giovanni Elemosiniere, cited a little while ago, and the Madonna della Campana to whom is dedicated the church that stands on a 160 m high hill which overlooks the panorama of the whole town and the neighbouring localities. Among the monuments we should mention are the Torre dell'Orologio (Clock Tower) and Il Sedile located in the characteristic Piazza San Giovanni; the Column of San Giovanni Elemosiniere; the Vittoria Alata (Winged Victory), a bronze monument located in the William Ingrosso municipal gardens; in Contrada Cisternella, on the other hand, is a medieval necropolis dating back to the 8th – 13th centuries. The characteristic and picturesque alleyways of the historic town centre bestow on visitors the atmosphere of times past; strolling along them it is easy to find old palaces and typical trattorias where you can taste the flavours and breathe in the characteristic aromas of the cuisine of the Salento hinterland.
