Coastal towers of Salento

The Coastal Towers of Salento, emblems of a past of foreign invasions, are today a strong tourist attraction also because they are now an inseparable feature with the territory and coastal environment. We find them on a high cliff overlooking the sea or right in the middle of the town, among high sand dunes or along cliffs mixed with Mediterranean scrub. These towers are our sisters, our fathers, our grandfathers, our ancestors, our roots-they are substantially more than just stones.
