The town of Torre San Gregorio overlooks the Ionian coast in all its splendour, a few kilometres from the splendid Santa Maria di Leuca. Set in an inlet of extraordinary beauty, sometimes sandy and sometimes rocky, it presents in the immediate vicinity a spectacular high cliff overlooking the sea, from which it is possible to admire a scenery and an enchanting sunset; walking slowly along the Ionian coast of San Gregorio you will be enchanted by the spectacle that presents itself to visitors: a rocky, high and jagged coast that suddenly encloses an exotic corner of paradise, a small beach located and almost jealously guarded inside of a bay of inestimable splendour.
In the past it was a Roman fishing village and the area presented itself as an important landing and docking point for ships that sailed its waters on whose seabed there are still scattered numerous shards of amphorae, coins, various tools and remains of the passage of commercial boats carried out in this harbour. Still visible is also a staircase of Messapian origin and a well used to supply fresh water.
Very popular with young people and families, San Gregorio lends itself very well to lovers of rock and sand that can be easily reached on foot. It is a very characteristic and welcoming place, which has a few houses and a marina; very close to other beautiful seaside areas including Torre Vado to the north, known for its beautiful beaches and Santa Maria di Leuca to the south, known for all its charm and for being the meeting point of the two seas. The town of San Gregorio is therefore a good starting point from which to start your holidays, to then admire the whole Ionian coast and beyond.
