What to see in and around Maruggio
Probably not everyone knows this, but the municipality of Maruggio is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The small village has about 5000 inhabitants and is about 40 km from Taranto. We are at the foothills of the Murge Tarantine, in the north-west of Salento, in the heart of the Ionian coast. The coast of Maruggio, which also includes the district of Campomarino, is about 9 km long and rich in beauty and Mediterranean scrub: a spectacle for the eyes and the heart.
Among the most interesting sights is the Mother Church of Maruggio, which dates back to the 15th century and is located in the town’s historic centre. The church was rebuilt after the 1743 earthquake that affected the area and was renovated during the last century. Inside there is a crypt that holds the body of San Costanzo.
The Church of San Giovanni Battista Penitente is also very interesting. It dates back to the same period and was built at the request of the Knights of Malta. The church was closed for worship and was private property for years. In 2016 it was purchased by the Municipality of Maruggio for the creation of the Multimedia Museum of the Order of Malta.
The Church of Santa Maria del Tempio is probably an ancient Templar fortress and therefore worthy of note.
But there is much more to Maruggio. The old town centre is full of interesting buildings and palaces that stand among the small alleyways that criss-cross it. A peculiarity of the area are the whitewashed houses that are on a par with the richly decorated palaces of the old lords. Also of interest are the Clock Tower and the castle.
Maruggio is also a perfect starting point for those wishing to visit the surrounding area. A few kilometres away, for example, are Torre Lapillo and Porto Cesareo, two other pearls of the Ionian Salento.
We are in Terra d’Arneo, in an area of coastal dunes and nature reserves. Here, in fact, lies the regional nature reserve “Palude del Conte and Duna Costiera”.
One of the peculiarities of Porto Cesareo is the presence, a few metres from its coast, of two small islands. The most famous is known as Isola dei Conigli (Rabbit Island) and is a small island covered in pines and acacias. The second is Isola della Malva. Here the seabed is partly rocky and rich in corals and partly sandy.
For lovers of bilogy, we recommend the Museum of Marine Biology, which tells the story of the Ionian Sea.
Porto Cesareo is also known for having the largest of the coastal towers in the area. This is the Torre Cesarea, which gives its name to the town and also characterises the image that can be seen from the sea.
As mentioned, Maruggio is about 40 km from Taranto. This is undoubtedly a town that deserves a thorough visit, as does Lecce. The capital of Salento is about 50 km away and can be reached in about an hour’s drive. There is so much to see and discover here that a whole day would not be enough.
Maruggio and the Tayga Beach Club await all those who dream of a holiday of absolute beauty and relaxation, but also of discovering the area.
