Cathedral of Sainte Agatha

The Cathedral dedicated to S. Agatha, is the finest example of the Salentine Baroque in Gallipoli, completely built out of the local stone “carparo”. The splendid façade was completed in 1696, the interior hosts a number of important paintings from the 17th and 18th century Salentine School and local painters.



The Castle incorporated the earlier Byzantines fortifications, and underwent several reconstructions and modification until the 17th century.
