Otranto was founded by the Greeks, incorporated by the Romans, taken over by the Longobards, and occupied by the Byzantines and the Normans, who each left a mark on the seafront city. It was sacked by the Turks in 1480. A walk around the old quarters will show you how all these cultures have blended together. You shouldn't miss the chance to visit the Cathedral where the bones of 813 martyrs are dispalyed in a glass case behind the alter.
