Torre Guaceto, located along the Adriatic coast of Alto Salento (Upper Salento), almost 30 kilometres away from Brindisi, is a nature reserve divided in two parts and covers an area of almost 1,200 hectares.

The visitor discovers a Mediterranean landscape with dunes, marshes and an area with big hundred-years old olive trees, symbol of the agricultural tradition of Puglia. Driving towards the sea, instead, the wetland is characterised by birds, amphibian and insects typical of this habitat.

Throughout the year, the reserve offers several sports activities such as trekking, ciclotrekking and seawatching and different educational activities on environmental education.

Begin from the Centro Visite (Visitors' centre) at Gawsit to discover Torre Guaceto.
