Thinking back to the various trips made, I remembered the beautiful summer in Puglia, especially in Salento. I will never forget the breathtaking landscapes seen there, the transparent sea, the fun and the great food. Sebastian had so much fun that, back from there, he continued to tell everyone for months to be “salentino” (a native of the Salento peninsula) and this was obviously not true!!
Puglia is full of really beautiful cities, some of these are still in my bucket list as Polignano a Mare, but those that we visited, and I will talk about now, are worth a trip there! We visited all by car, the distance between the cities is not excessive and you can also arrive by plane to Brindisi or Bari and rent a car from there to create your ideal itinerary between these cities.
But it’s the baroque that characterizes the city in a very particular declination so as to deserve the nickname of Baroque of Lecce.

In 2010 the ancient village was recognized as a UNESCO Cultural Heritage.
SANTA MARIA DI LEUCA
In particular the Breath Cave impressed us, we have reached it by swimming from the boat and there you can only enter by diving and passing by the entrance under water. To try, but for me a little scary!
Don’t miss the beautiful Punta Prosciutto beach! Choose a non-cloudy day to go and you will not regret it:

While in San Foca we were in a beach that had attracted us for its Buddha statues, the Ensō Beach:
