Today’s tour Melpignano, Lecce and Gallipoli.
There are 2 harbours, either side of the causeway roads that lead to the old Fortified City which is on a peninsular!
This double sided monument stood near the road as you came onto the quay side area. Rather weather eaten on this side.
Melpignano is a small town adjacent to Cursi which was on our way out towards Lecce our intended excursion for the day! It appears that Lecce (which was manic traffic wise) has only on street parking were allowed with payment meters? We drove around for the best part of 2 hours looking for an off street car park via satnav & maps looking hoping that we might chance a vacant street space - we didn't! We did pass through the old part with some very narrow cobbald streets and fine buildings and in theend gave up, to go to Gallipoli which is where most of the photos were taken!
