Tips

  • Gianluca Orlando

    The Acaya Castle to protect the fortified citadel by Gian Giacomo dell'Acaya trusted architect of Charles V, who was entrusted with the strengthening of the defensive walls of Lecce and its castle. And he did the same here, between 1521 and 1535, transforming the small agricultural village into a typically Renaissance fortress.

    The Castle is built where once stood the small medieval settlement Segine, a center that in 1535 took the name of Acaya from the baronial family owned.

    Acaya fortified town of the sixteenth century, a rare survivor of its kind in southern Italy. Ideal starting point to immerse yourself in the history of this part of the south-east of Salento.
