Welcome To San Michele Salentino

San Michele Salentino born in an centuries-old olive area full of with trulli and Masserie.

A charming town in the province of Brindisi, located in the upper Salento, with its approximately 6400 citizens, built just two centuries ago around an eighteenth-century farmhouse, which belonged to the Dentice di Frasso prince.

In the historic center, the small Matrix built between 1876 and 1882 overlooks Piazza Dante. Not far away, near Piazza Marconi, stands the modern and bright Church of San Michele Arcangelo, built in 1935.


Further on you can visit the Municipal Art Gallery, named after Salvatore Cavallo, inside which stands a collection of paintings and sculptures that gives the opportunity to immerse yourself in art. A few steps after the Pinacoteca we find ourselves in the greenery of the Villa Comunale.

In reality, the ancient heart of the town beats one kilometer away from the town: Borgo Ajeni, where folklore, village festivals, events and traditions are the setting.

In Contrada Augelluzzi, among the olive groves dotted with characteristic trulli, there is the homonymous cave dating back to the Middle Paleolithic, witness of the Neanderthal presence.

San Michele Salentino is a town that stands out for the warm welcome of its citizens, for its gastronomy, for its traditions, for the various cultural and religious initiatives and for the opportunity to spend a peaceful stay, immersed in nature.

It is the land of the almond dried fig, a typical local product.

In Europe it is the city with the highest ratio of car dealerships to citizens.

It was also entitled Poetic Country, in fact, on some walls, the verses of the most beautiful poems of the most famous poets stand out.
