“In Salento a never-before-known ancient capital is coming to light and the probable landing place of Aeneas”: extraordinary archaeological discoveries in Castro
Central and strategic in the Mediterranean. Spur of the peninsula, closest, by far, to the island of Corfu and Greece. But also the sacredness of Castro emerges, overwhelming, after the latest sensational archaeological discoveries. Which ideally flank it with Meryem Ana Evi, the “house of Mary” in Ephesus, a sacred place and meeting place for Christians and Muslims.
The town in the province of Lecce, which today has just over 2,000 residents but is a stage in world tourism, stands out as one of the capitals of antiquity thanks to the work of the professor emeritus of Unisalento Francesco D’Andria and his collaborators.
