You can't miss this monument, whichever side of Brindisi you're in. Entrance is free although you'll have to be prepared to climb many steps to get to the top and enjoy the view (the lift only goes about half of the way and it takes about 10 minutes to get to the top by using the stairs).

Great way to get a bird's eye view of Brindisi and Casale. there are stairs and an elevator to get you to the top of the monument where you can snap some great photos. There are several memorials along the way as you climb the stairs.

A must-go place, it has history and a lovely view of all Brindisi. You can take the best pictures of the city in a sunny day. You need to climb plenty of stairs, though, as there is a lift but only till a certain level.
