Punta Palasci - Easternmost point of Italy

Punta Palascia or "Capo d'Otranto"is not only the eastern tip of Italy, but also the junction of the Ionian and Adriatic seas. Its lighthouse receives countless tourists throughout the year. Locals visit it especially during the night of December 31, and become there the first Italians to welcome the new year. 

Initially a military sighting tower was built in that place during the reign of Emperor Charles V. Later the building was abandoned and it ended disappearing. In its place, in the XIX century, the lighthouse was build that we can now visit and in which we find the Ecology Museum of the Mediterranean Ecosystem, where a visit is free. So no excuses not to conquer this MOSTPOINT!

What else is there
In Otranto, a city dating back to the Paleolithic era, you will find countless historical places. Do not miss the Cathedral, faithful guardian of the bones of the Martyrs of Otranto who were 800 Christians led by Antonio Primate in 1480 and massacred for refusing to convert to Islam, after the fall of the place and then in the hands of the Ottomans.

To the south are the beautiful beaches of Puerto Badisco where Aeneas landed after escaping from Troy. Nearby you find Lecce, known as the "Florence of the South", the name alone speaks of the impressive architectural examples.

Notes
From the port of Otrantoyou can catch a ferry and jump to Igoumentitsa on mainland Greece and the island of Corfu.
