There is little to attract anyone to this town besides the Basilica and adjoining cloister and refectory. These alone make a trip well worthwhile. Parking can be somewhat of a lottery and only the Basilica is well signposted.

While in the area, it's worth a stop in Galatina as it is a charming little town. In an hour or two you can see everything it has to offer.

Galatina's old town may be small but it's immensely attractive with some lovely little piazzas and attractive buildings. The cathedral is impressive, especially floodlit at night.

Take a couple of hours and stroll around this jewel of Salentine Baroque. Everything is magical and seems from another era: the Basilica and the little streets, how great! Early in the summer mornings the place is all quiet and sunny, it seems really taken...More
