Spongano is a small town, situated a few kilometers from the coast, in Southern Puglia, an area of great architectural, archeological, botanical, gastronomic and historic interest. It is an ideal base from which to explore this stunning and unspoilt part of Italy which, so far, has escaped the heavy tourism that dominates other parts of the country.



Puglia is a large area in Southern Italy made up of several sub-regions, the most southern of which is Salento. It is here, deep down in the heel of the boot, that the Palazzo is located. Salento is an area that has been subject to many invasions and conquests. These diverse and powerful influences can be detected throughout the region in its architecture, gastronomy, language, festivals and culture.
