    We stayed in the south for a few nights. Only 30' aways was Gallipoli, so we thought we should check this old town out.

    And what a great visit it turned out to be. Parked our car not far from the old town and crossed the bridge leading to the Centro Storico. The impressive Castello welcomes you when you enter this amazing historic town.
    Take the Via Antoniette de Pace or the smaller Via XXIV Maggio and head to the impressive Duomo, the Basilica Concattedrale di Sant'Agata Vergine e Martire. The streets and lanes are quite narrow, so you have to step back a bit to appreciate the beauty of the Duomo.

    Countless shops and restaurants can be found. It's sure worth to get lost a bit in this maze - especially when you head a bit to the western part of the old town. That's where many locals have their homes. Less tourists, but just fun to wander the small streets.

    Also nice to walk around this peninsula. Amazing ocean views with the bluest and greenest water you could think of. Some good restaurants with ocean views (try the Trattoria Scoglio delle Sirene). Besides the big sights, the whole old town itself is a sight of its own. We loved it. Fantastic town, sure well worth a (longer) drive.

    Interesting little museum to learn more about the history of olive oil used in oil lamps. Audio in different languages available. Short, cheap and good to learn from the history of Gallipoli

    St Agatha has that now familiar baroque facade, a warm biscuity hue in the afternoon sun. Sadly it’s such a squash in the via in which it is located that you can’t get a good front view of it!
    Inside, it’s very dark and gloomy, and almost entirely covered in equally dark and gloomy paintings.
    My partner thought it ‘amazing’, I thought it too sombre inside.
    But it is THE church to see in Gallipoli.

    Just really nicely done up, great English explanations. Marvellous view on the sea and city. Audio not needed to buy.

    Kind of like an LSD flashback. Hard to imagine what it looked like to people a few centuries ago. They must have been in awe.

    This became our sanctuary during a cloud burst and it gave us time to appreciate the stone carvings within the church. It is simple and very peaceful place to sit and think. We visited on a Wednesday morning in September and I am not sure of the opening times - worth a visit.

    Even if you don’t like perfume or body lotion too much, if you happen to be in the area... this store is worth a visit. Amazing architecture combined with italien taste and a glimpse into the good old times.

    The sales women was really friendly and helpful... and here you might find those special desperately needed gifts for your beloved ones at home. The quality of the products speaks for itself and here you really find those unforgettable giveaways ... because our olfactory memories are the strongest! Smell olive and fig trees or almond blossom combined with the amazing salty scent of the sea...

    This must be about the best known Greek Fountain in Italy, but it dates from the 16C and this is not it’s original location. OK it is still worth seeing, and do not forget that it has two sides; what seems to be the front (facing north) is less interesting than the back (facing south). There are some good photo opportunities if the light is right.

    From Le Sirene Hotel I walked along the coast for an hour and a half to reach the place. Good walking shoes is recommended.

    This church has the most incongruous interior and exterior I have ever seen. Several reviewers characterized the style as “fascist” but it does not have the stern, linear style that I think of from that period (Romanesque, symmetry, simplicity). It does have a light-colored stone facade with over the top ostentation, a series of modernistic triangular peaks; stelle can be seen in the rear. The interior is somewhat spare, but the interior columns are Corinthian, wouldn’t Ionic or Doric have been a better choice? Otherwise, nothing else is unusual in the interior.

    We visited this small. Museum ( cost 1.50 euros) . We listened to a narration in English describing the crushing of olive oil lamp oil - several hundred years ago. The cavern and mill was well worth visiting!

    Built 400 years ago this is a nice church facing the sea on one side and the small streets of the old town on the other. The exterior is relatively bare and the interior is very simple, as appropriate for a Franciscan church. There is an interesting wood altare and a very old presepio.

    We took a day trip to the port town of Gallipoli, a true Italian sea port which originally was protected by a castle type fortress. A beautiful church dating from the 17th Century. A true blessing for us to stop by unexpectedly and discover that Mass was beginning. Set on the outer edges of the City, overlooking the Ionian Sea.
