Castro and Castro Marina

Halfway between Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca, Castro is a pretty town famous for its castle, built in the 11th century and for its Cathedral, also dating back to the 1100s. The seaside portion of town, called Castro marina, is where sea lovers can find access to the water: there are some organized lidos, but don’t expect to find a sandy beach here: you will have to dive into the sea from a seawall.
