Salve and surroundings
The territory of the municipality of Salve, which extends for 32,8 km², is located in the low Salento along the Ionian coast of Leuca. The inhabited center stands on the modest reliefs of the Serre Salentine at 130 m s.l.m .; the municipal territory is between 0 and 165 m s.l.m.
The hinterland of Salvese is characterized by slight hollows, among which opens the Canale dei Fani, a large canal of erosive origin. The shore of the canal has a system of terraced trees cultivated with olive trees, although there are limbs scattered with Mediterranean scrub prevalence of lentis, fillirea and myrtle; the water stream, fed by outcrops and small springs of groundwater, is perceptible in the presence of a more or less continuous strip of cane in the marsh of marsh and rare specimens of agnocasto. The coastal strip, once marshland, was completely reclaimed in the thirties of the twentieth century through the creation of artificial canals and basins. The coastline, from the low backdrops from whose waters emerge small rocks such as the Island of the Fanciulla, has a white and finely sandy expanse surrounded by dunes covered by various plant species of the family of acacia, grasses and, above all, characteristic lilies marine. The presence of megalithic monuments, such as dolmen, menhirs and spectacles, testify to human attendance from remote times. In the Bronze Age, the territory of Salve hosted Messapic settlements witnessed by several archaeological finds. It is the case of the settlement of the Masseria dei Fani inhabited several times since 1550 BC. at 470 BC, of the village called Spigolizzi dating back to the Middle Bronze Age (XVI-XV century BC), the legendary citadel of Cassandra, which according to the legend had a mill that grated golden nuggets; the center was florid in fact thanks to the production of oil and wine and was devastated by the Goths in 548 AD.
An old legend tells that the origin of the current city center would be to the centurion Salvius, who in 267 BC he would have had these lands in a prize after the Salento was subjugated to Rome. In fact, from the latest archaeological studies, the birth of the village of Salve dates back to the period between 400 and 500 dC.
The inhabited center expanded for the displacement of the inhabitants of the Ionian coast, where malaria spread. In the 9th century AD, in order to defend itself against the Saracen raids, the walls were erected; Other fortifications, still existing, were built in the 15th century as defense by the Turks. With the advent of feudalism, Salve was dominated by several noble families: the Altavilla, the Dodge, the Antoglietta, the Francavilla, the Scaglione, the Zito, Montefusco, Valentini, Gallone and Caracciolo. In 1563 the construction of the Torre Pali stone tower, erected by the Spaniards and many others on the whole Salento coast, was completed. The tower, which rises from the sea, is located about 13 km west of Santa Maria di Leuca. The towers were used for sighting the barbarian ships and alarming the entire Salento territory in a timely fashion, by switching on signaling fires. The tower gave its name to the homonymous village.
In 1930 the great remediation of the Ionian Coast of Salento was started, completed in the second post-war period. Thanks to these works, it has been possible to use the beaches of the coast and have developed the seaside tourism, which today is one of the main economic resources of the municipality. The beautiful beaches of the Salve Marine are located along the Jonica Coast of Southern Salento between Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca.
Fine and golden sand, crystal clear water, flowing sand dunes and breathtaking sunsets make Pescoluse, Pali Tower, Old Town and Lido Marini, the sought-after and unspoiled resorts. For its beauty and peculiarity, a stretch of beach has even been renamed and is universally recognized as "The Maldives of Salento" and is used for the deposition of "caretta-caretta" sea turtle eggs.
