Day Three Hundred Twenty-Four

Italy - Salento Multiview 2

Notes: Salento is Italy's southeastern-most peninsula, forming the heel of the "boot".  The peninsula is composed of limestone, which was used to build the structures shown here.  I believe they may be coastal towers, which were built mostly in the 15th and 16th centuries to protect the coastline from attack.

Notes: This card shows more of the sea that surrounds Salento - the Adriatic sea to the east, and the Ionian to the southwest.  The cliff in the lower center photo really shows the limestone well.  And of course, the building on the left is another of the coastal watchtowers.
