The Grotta delle Pupe is a corner of paradise located in Torre Santo Stefano; we are just north of Otranto, on that stretch of coastline that is reflected in the beautiful waters of the Adriatic Sea and that sees the presence of rocky inlets mixed with wide cliffs that lead directly into the sea and draw a natural landscape of extreme beauty. The Grotta delle Pupe is 32 kilometres from the main town of Lecce and about 3 kilometres from the centre of Otranto, and represents the utmost expression of the whims of an uncontaminated nature that has interwoven the green of a large Mediterranean maquis together with native vegetation with the brown of the jagged cliffs that shimmer under the bright rays of the sun and a crystal-clear sea as a typical feature of this coastal stretch of incomparable beauty. The Grotta delle Pupe is a large rocky cavity that develops according to a spontaneous architectural order, almost resembling the rounded splay of an ancient medieval church immersed in a natural pool of rare beauty and brilliance. The sea has hues ranging from emerald green to deep blue, conditioned by the difference in the seabed that extends the different shades according to the different points of view. The place is frequented both by young people seeking thrills in close contact with nature and by families seeking relaxation, or by solitary travellers; uncrowded even during the summer, the Grotta delle Pupe is a magical place as only the Salento can offer. Rock shoes, flippers and a mask are recommended to explore the beautiful seabed, for the rest relax under the warm Salento sun and enjoy your holiday at Grotta delle Pupe.
