Meraviglioso Salento

You can’t explain Salento. You have to live Salento, because it enters your soul, envelops you and doesn’t leave you anymore.


Salento (in Salento Salentu; in Taranto Salènde; in Greek Σαλέντο, Salénto), also known as the Salento peninsula, is a sub-region of southern Puglia, between the Ionian Sea to the west and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Figuratively it forms the heel of the Italian boot.

The inhabitants of the area, which includes the entire province of Lecce, much of that of Brindisi and the eastern part of that of Taranto, are distinguished above all for glottological characteristics compared to the rest of Puglia. From a legal point of view, Salento within the Kingdom of Naples, then the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, almost perfectly coincided with the territorial district called Terra d'Otranto, which survived administrative reforms for centuries.
