Gallipoli, through Architecture, History and Tradition
Gallipoli from the Greek kalé-polis, that is beautiful town, is most frequently known as the Ionian Pearl. The old town, originally built on an island, was later bound to the land through a long bridge made of stone. Among old palaces with baroque balconies and antique portals with coats of arms there is the cathedral, a XVII cent. masterpiece, several churches, like the little Purità with its majolica floor, in front of the stunning scenery of the Ionian Sea. Santa Cristina, the patron saint of the town, is celebrated on July 24th with ancient religious rites: a very suggestive procession and spectacular fireworks. In front of the fortified town, the main road leads up to the modern part of the town, where lively commercial activities such as inviting ice-cream shops, pizzerias, restaurants and nice clothing shops are open until late at night.
