Built on a previous Angevine stronghold, the Castle of Copertino represents one of the most impressive defensive structures in Salento. The visitor is welcomed by the Renaissance portal, while true treasure chests of history are the chapel of San Marco, frescoed by Ginserio Strafella, a mannerist painter native of Copertino, and the chapel of Santa Maria Maddalena. Designed by Evangelista Menga, the architect of emperor Charles V, today the castle is part of the project ''Cassio - Dieci musei per conoscere il patrimonio italiano'' (ten museums to discover the Italian cultural heritage). The many subventions, carried out in cooperation with the Italian Blind Union, the Rome State Institute for the Deaf, National Federation of Institutions for the Blind, allow visitors to experience some of the artworks through the touch. The collection is further enriched by the presence of an audio/video equipment screening subtitled videos, printed and simplified texts.
