  • The castle of Castro is located in the municipality of Castro in the province of Lecce, Apulia. It is very well maintained, as well as all over the country. Is very nice and agrees to visit with the Guide because it explains very well the history of the Castle and is very interesting. Castro is a must for anyone visiting the Salento.
