August 31st

Gala Dinner at “Grotta del Conte Restaurant”  

The attendees are transferred by Bus  to Castro Marina.

The beautiful Castro is imbued with history and legends. It is perched on a cliff, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, 48 km away from Lecce and, stretching towards the sea, it becomes a marina awarded the Blue Flag.

This town boasts ancient origins, being the Roman heir of Castrum Minervae and, over the centuries, it has kept its importance, becoming one of the first counties in Salento.


The dinner will be served at “Grotta del Conte Restaurant” in Castro Marina. Grotta del Conte is an ideal place where you can enjoy the fresh flavor of the sea by means of the traditional Salento’s cooking and typical dishes in a very nice, friendly and large hall inside, or on the terrace sitting in front of the charming landscape of Castro’s blue coast.
