Grotta delle Pupe is a corner of paradise that is located in Torre Santo Stefano; we are just north of Otranto, on that stretch of coast that is reflected in the beautiful waters of the Adriatic Sea and that sees the presence of rocky inlets mixed with wide cliffs that give directly into the sea and draw a natural landscape of extreme beauty. The Grotta delle Pupe is 32 kilometers from the capital city of Lecce and about 3 kilometers from the center of Otranto, and represents the utmost expression of the whims of an unspoiled nature that has interwoven the green of a wide Mediterranean scrub along with native vegetation with the brown of 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; it almost looks like 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 different viewpoints. The place is frequented by both young people looking for thrills in close contact with nature and families seeking relaxation, or lone travelers; uncrowded even during the summer, Grotta delle Pupe is a magical place as only Salento can offer. Rock shoes, fins and mask are recommended to explore a beautiful seabed; otherwise, relax under the warm Salento sun and enjoy your vacation at Grotta delle Pupe.
