Tricase April 11-14, 2019 
2° Edition
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.
