Otranto Apartments & Villas (Puglia)
In ancient times Otranto in the region of Apulia, was called 'Hydruntum' (from the little river Idro which flows into the port) and it was a Greek town, perhaps founded by Taranto, and then a Roman municipality. Due to its position, it was a popular port especially in the Republican Roman because of the relationship between Italy and Greece. For a historical and relaxing stay in Puglia then rent one of our Otranto Apartments or Otranto Villas.
In the Middle Age it was one of the most important centres of the Byzantine dominion in Italy, and had a Greek bishop. The most important monument is the Cathedral, a solemn temple rich in silence, holy for the memory of the massacre in 1480. Founded about in 1080 (the crypt) it was built in the second half of the XII century and partially rebuilt after 1480.
Another very important church is San Pietro: a Byzantine building of the X to XI century, it is interesting because has inside a lot of frescos. Otranto is known also for its very beautiful coast which attracts thousands of tourists every year. The summer climate is very pleasant and the water of the Apulian sea is crystal clear; an ideal location for booking Otranto Holiday Apartments or a Villa in Otranto from Authentic Italy.
