Capital of the same province, the city of Brindisi has almost 90 million inhabitants and is a major centre of Salento. Thanks to its privileged position on a natural harbour, the city of Brindisi has played an important role in trade and culture. It has been a central “bridge” to the East.
Brindisi still retains many traces of its eventful history. During your holidays in Brindisi we suggest you to visit the Aragonese Castle (also called Red Castle), built in the mid-fourteenth century by Alfonso of Aragon.
