Acaya has an imposing medieval castle and defensive walls around the perimeter (a rare example of a fortified city, visible today). It has as well a middle golf course among the largest in Italy, with several fields, including the last one, just completed, measuring 118 hectares.
The village is located in North-West of San Cataldo and adjacent to the protected natural park Le Cesine. Through a network of narrow streets, lined with ancient buildings, you will arrive to the medieval church with its bell tower and, when tired, you can have some refreshments in a restaurant that prepares delicious dishes and has excellent local cheeses: “Nonno Pici”. A visit to the town allows you to breathe the history of Medieval Salento and to appreciate the charm, with large fully restored castle and an unusual chivalrous atmosphere. The Renaissance fortress is an important trace of the Aragonese period.
