Useful information


Otranto's historic centre is encircled by imposing walls which date back to the Messapian period (8C BC). As a result of constant threats of invasion from the sea, the walls have been rebuilt on numerous occasions over the centuries. Two gateways, the Porta Terra, which stands in front of the Torre Alfonsina, are the main entry points to the old town.
