Otranto, Castro e Salve, le “Bandiere Blu” orgoglio del Salento

23 Mag

Siete partiti alla volta del Salento, avete in mente moltissime località da vedere che vi hanno consigliato amici e parenti, ma non sapete orientarvi su quale scegliere per prima. Per organizzare le vostre priorità, la “Bandiera Blu” può essere un ottimo criterio di selezione, che vi farà guadagnare tempo prezioso per la vostra vacanza, da spendere sdraiati al sole piuttosto che intenti a leggere le mappe!

Otranto, Salve e Castro sono i comuni del Salento insigniti del prestigioso riconoscimento che ogni anno la Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) conferisce alle località costiere europee. Qualità delle acque, servizi offerti e pulizia delle spiagge sono i 3 parametri che garantiscono l’assegnazione del premio, che dal 1987 viene assegnato ogni anno a spiagge in 48 paesi del mondo in Europa, Sudafrica, Nuova Zelanda, Canada e nei Caraibi.

Andiamo a vedere perché queste tre meravigliose località si sono guadagnate il rinomato premio. 

OTRANTO – Non ha bisogno di presentazioni: il piccolo gioiello, proteso a Oriente, è incastonato su uno sperone roccioso a picco sul mare della costa adriatica. Il borgo, racchiuso dalle mura aragonesi, con le caratteristiche case bianche che si snodano in un dedalo di viuzze, lascia senza fiato.

Dal “Lungomare degli Eroi”, attraversata Porta Alfonsina, si accede alla città vecchia, con tappa doverosa al Castello Aragonese (oggi vivace centro culturale grazie alle numerose mostre d’arte) e alla Cattedrale romanica con il pavimento musivo del XII secolo, raffigurante l’albero della vita e le reliquie degli 800 Martiri, massacrati dai Turchi nel 1480.

Appena fuori Otranto, sventola la Bandiera Blu su alcune delle più incantevoli spiagge di tutto il Salento. Verso nord si dispiegano le località di Conca Specchiulla, dei Laghi Alimini, della Baia dei Turchi. A sud si può far visita alla Baia delle Orte, a Torre Sant’Emiliano e all’insenatura di Porto Badisco, celebre per essere stata l’approdo di Enea.

  • Spiaggia Baia dei Turchi Otranto

Fuori dal centro abitato, merita una visita il laghetto verde smeraldo circondato dalle montagne rosse della ex Cava di Bauxite e il faro di Punta Palascìa, uno dei pochi ancora visitabili in Italia e punto più a Est dello Stivale. 

Lasciamo alle immagini, più che alle parole la descrizione di questi posti senza tempo.

SALVE – Un piccolissimo comune a 75 km a sud di Lecce che è diventato famoso soprattutto per le sue spiagge, ribattezzate addirittura come “Maldive del Salento”. Sabbia finissima, fondali bassi e trasparenti, incorniciati da morbide dune ricoperte dalla macchia mediterranea sono le caratteristiche delle spiagge di Pescoluse, Posto Vecchio e Torre Pali. Basterà poco per sentirsi catapultati in uno scenario tropicale, pur rimanendo ancora in Europa e in Italia.

La città vecchia di Salve è costellata di torri signorili e palazzi nobiliari, dove spicca la Chiesa Matrice dedicata a San Nicola Magno, dove si custodisce l’organo più antico di Puglia, il seicentesco Olgiati Mauro. Proprio in queste zone, sulle strade che conducono al mare, è stato ritrovato il cosiddetto “tesoretto” di Salve, ovvero le monete d’argento della Magna Grecia, oggi custodite nel Museo di Taranto.

CASTRO – Uno dei tratti più frastagliati della costa salentina, ma proprio per questo uno dei più suggestivi, Castro si sviluppa sulle ceneri di un antico borgo di pescatori. Grazie alle sue numerose grotte, la località offre la possibilità di fare memorabili escursioni in barca alla scoperta di queste bellissime cavità.

Grotta Romanelli è uno fra i più importanti giacimenti preistorici italiani con i graffiti a tinta rossa, mentre la Grotta Zinzulusa, visitabile anche da terra, prende il nome dal termine dialettale “zinzuli” (stracci, pezze), ovvero le stalattiti che si trovano al suo interno.

Arroccata sulla scogliera a picco sull’Adriatico, a circa 48 km da Lecce, la romana Castrum Minervae è sempre stata centro nevralgico del Salento. Oggi è un grazioso borgo con caratteristiche stradine e impreziosita da monumenti come l’ex Cattedrale del XII secolo con facciata romanica, i resti di una piccola chiesa bizantina del X secolo e il Castello Aragonese, dove è stata ritrovata la statuina di Atena Frigia, prova dell’esistenza del tempio della dea Minerva.
