Welcome to Tricase

THE SMALL CRADLE OF THE INTERNATIONAL INDEPENDENT CINEMA The   town   of   Tricase   lies   at   about   fifty   kilometers   from   Lecce.   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 most beautiful in Salento. Tricase   is   an   ancient   city,   and   during   the   13th   century   many   landowners   were    fighting   to   put   their hands   over   these   wonderful   sun-kissed   land.   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.   Well   known   is   the   castle   of   the   family,   the   Princes   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   just the   sea   to   entertain   tourists   from   all   over   the   world   but   history   and   culture   will      amaze   you:   we recommend   a   visit   to   the   CHIESA   MADRE   (The   main   Church)   dating   from   the   sixteenth   century,   or the Dominican convent facing the square, just to start your tour. Tricase   has   two   small   towns   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.
