Gallipoli’s Historic Old City
Palazzo Salapolis is in the heart of the historic center of Gallipoli, the most charming part of the city, within walking distance of the city’s main historical and cultural attractions. You can visit the Basilica Cathedral of Saint Agata, the adjacent Diocesan Museum, the Castello Angioino, and the Civic Museum, as well as many shops and art galleries you can find along Via Antonietta De Pace.
Foodies will discover the many typical bars and restaurants in the old city where you can eat fresh fish, and the characteristic fish market at the port where you can buy your own to prepare at home.
It’s great fun to get lost in the narrow streets of the ancient village, admiring courtyard houses, historic palazzos with facades and balconies to be photographed and then to arrive along the historic border walls overlooking the sea, giving breathtaking views, especially at sunset.
