Frantoio Ipogeo di Palazzo Granafei

They extend underground for about 200 square meters, Below the buildings D'Acugna and fats, which face onto Via Antonietta De Pace. Our Gallipoli are the property of the Association Gallipoli Nostra, which in 1988 had them fully restored and opened to the public use. Inside were reconstructed models of the eighteenth century, some presses Calabrese (two large screws). Originals are, however, the press Genovese (a single screw) and a few presses of the nineteenth century. The visit is particularly challenging with the help of expert guides, who make known to the visitor the techniques and phases of olive oil, thus reliving significant moments in history and local culture, as well as in times when for food oil was marketed primarily for industrial uses (in the carding of wool - especially so required by Paesidel Northern Europe, Sweden and England in the head) and for public and private lighting.

This is a large formerly commercial olive oil production site dug out of the limestone under the Palace. It costs €1.50 to get in, and is well worth the money. The rooms, dating from the 17th century, were restored by a local association and preserve some of the old presses and other equipment used in production. It's all well laid out, There are English and other language leaflets which gives a lot of detail and there is also a 5-minute commentary every so often in English and other tongues.

Antica Farmacia Provenzano

Reviewed By James C - San Francisco, California

I had an infected knee after a street brawl in Naples, yes really some kids tried to steal my fiends watch. As a result, I had some abrasions on my knee that got infected so I had occasion to purchase hydrogen peroxide several times while i was in Puglia. This place was beautiful but charged four times what I paid elsewhere in other tourist hot spots in Puglia.

Spiaggia Baia Verde di Gallipoli

Reviewed By KrisD_pl - Warsaw, Poland

Been there for few hours in mid-October. Despite the temperature reaching 25 degrees most of bars with sunbeds were closed as in Italy it was already off-season. Nevertheless we just took our towels and sunbathed on the beach. The water was not so cold and I also took a dip in the sea. The sand, the views are not amazing - it's just an average beach.

Spiaggia della Purita

Reviewed By trusted777 - Doha, Qatar

The nearest beach when you are in Gallipoli. The water is clean but if you are there on the weekend or some holiday expect garbage in the water. Much to say about the culture of the people and their respect to the nature and others.
It is accessible by ramp but no toilets or showers or umbrella renting. is a free beach as they say.

Il Frantoio del Vicere

Reviewed By Hereford - az

Special place to learn about olive oil, in the 17th and 18th centuries. The underground olive presses can be viewed and the English recording was very helpful to learn about the process. worth the admission fee. Only takes 20 minutes. Closes at 12:30, so don't go late! Must be able to walk down narrow stairs, a short distance.
