WELCOME TO TRICASE

A SMALL CRADLE OF THE INTERNATIONAL INDEPENDENT CINEMA At   about   fifty   kilometers   from   Lecce,   lies   the   town   of   Tricase.   The   city   overlooks   the Adriatic   Sea   and   its   coast   during   the   summer   season   offers   clear   water   and   pristine        nature making this area one of the best in Salento. Tricase   is   an   ancient   city,   and   in   year   1200   many   landowners   were    fighting   to   have   their hands   over   these   wonderful   lands   kissed   by   the   sun.   The   last   feudal   lords   were   the Gallone   Princes,   an   important   family   of   Terra   D'Otranto,   who   found   residence   in   Tricase and   stayed   there   for   a   very         long   time.         Very   famous   is   the   castle   of   the   family,   which   is none   other   than   the   Prince's   Gallone   Palace ,   beautiful   building   and   cultural   center   of the city, home of the Salento International Film Festival. Because   of   its   ancient   origins,   tricase   offers   a   lot   to   those   who   want   to   visit   it.   There   is   not only   the   sea   to   entertain   tourists   from   all   over   the   world:   we   recommend   a   visit   to   the CHIESA   MADRE   (The   main   Church)   dating   from   the   sixteenth   century,   or   the   Dominican convent facing the square. Tricase   has   two   small   town   into   its   council:   Depressa   and   Lucugnano;   two   beaches:   port of   Tricase   and   marina   Serra;   three   districts:   Caprarica,   Tutino   and   St.   Euphemia.   You   can just walk through the streets of these places to realize the beauty of the area.
