  • Beautiful and feature is the city of Otranto, built with fortifications overlooking the sea dominates the channel which takes its name from the city itself. Superb cathedral that looks through the alleys of downtown and the castle that overlooks the entire city within its protection. From the top of the walls you can see the nearby Albania.
