Capo D'otranto

The edge of more oriental territory of Italy, to alone 75 km from the Albanian coast, the sour and tall coast disseminated of towers of sighting. The submerged coast is, in some points, strongly steep and rich of caves. The cave de "lu lampiune" to point Torches', it is one of the most beautiful and suggestive of the whole Salento, but you/he/she has been described and introduced "to the public" only in 1989, from the speleosubs of Nardò. The cave is ample but not entirely dark from the moment that he/she introduces three entries, of which one on the ceiling, directly in connection with the outside. The coralligeno of wall is like her/it master and welcomes a notable whole candelabrum sponges Axinella cannabina. In surface it is interesting to notice a non frequent biocenosi in Puglia: the algae sidewalk calcareous. It deals with a formation originated from the accumulation of the calcareous skeletal rests of living (for the more "algae of stone") organisms that you/they form a real sidewalk or moulding, to water's hair in surface. Otranto, slightly more to North of the homonym Head, it is an I bring active from thousand of years and it boasts marvelous backdrops.

Baia dei Turchi

The tall coast that goes from Leuca to Otranto is note for the inimitable scenery of the cave Zinzulusa that opens on the sea.

The immersion, of 45/50 minutes, it is driven from signalings set on the fund. The whole coastal area deserves to be visited and in the proximities, to the breast of Acquaviva, to less than 10 m than possible depth to rummage among the rests of the Trevancore, English steamboat of 92 ms, been shipwrecked in 1882 after having collided with the bluff, at night, because of the state of drunkenness of the crew.
