In Salento in Roca Vecchia a few kilometers from Melendugno on the wonderful and mighty Adriatic Sea is the Grotta della Poesia, here the cliff collapsing on itself has formed a real natural pool, about thirty meters away from the sea and known worldwide. To reach the Cave of Poetry the path in front of you is fantastic, an impressive panorama made of high cliffs overlooking the sea. The area, closed to the public due to danger of collapse and archaeological work, is continually stormed by the many tourists. To experience the thrill of diving from the Cave of Poetry is a bit like feeling part of and merging into the same nature, between the cliffs that surround you and the infinite beauty of this stupendous landscape. Above all, the Grotto of Poetry is about capturing the moment through a photo, watching other people dive from prohibitive heights, climbing back up the cliff after a dive with just the strength of your fingers, having fun with friends, drinking a beer on an absolutely relaxing day, little things and big emotions that make you feel fulfilled and satisfied to the point that you wish the summer would really never end. Poetry Cave actually has a smaller circular sister and is connected to it by an underwater passage. A little further back you can see a column supporting the statue of Santa Maria di Roca.
