La Sommità Relais
The first record of Relais La Sommità is 1200 when there was a tower to control the sea against the invasion. Then it has become a “nobiliar house” for a very important family; the ground floor, that now is the restaurant, was an olive press for the production of oil. Part of the building was property of the Curia; legends and anecdotes enrich the rooms. A private terrace is located on the first floor, and at the sunset you can enjoy a glass of wine taking in the scenery.
Puglia in Southern Italy hides a myriad of guarded sights, historical architecture and beaches untouched by tourism.
Puglia is a region that can satisfy any taste and interest, from its ancient history to the Medieval and Baroque epochs, from its castles that line the coast to the tiny, artistic villages where artisanal masterpieces come to life.
Local and international festivals add a little spice to life such as the Otranto Jazz Festival and La Notte della Taranta, where the area’s traditional dance, the Pizzica is celebrated.
