Torre San Giovanni is the best known seaside resort among the Ugento Marine, during the winter it is a fishing village, but especially in the summer it becomes an important and appreciated tourist destination. Its history is very ancient, in the past it was one of the main strategic centers of the Ionian Sea, in particular linked to the messapian city of Ozan (the current Ugento). On the little harbor still today it is in perfect state of conservation, the characteristic tower used as a maritime beacon. Built at the behest of Charles V in the sixteenth century to protect the coast from the continuous attacks of the Saracens, in its vicinity stood the ancient settlement of the Roman era, with an important historical and archaeological value. In the following centuries the spread of malaria determined the state of abandonment by the population, but in the first decades of the last century under the Fascist Regime great reclamation works have made these coasts healthy. Torre San Giovanni has been a prominent tourist resort for over thirty years, thanks to the construction of luxury hotels, residences, holiday villages, restaurants, discos and trendy clubs. In its long coastline characterized by fine golden sand and some stretches of rock with low rock easy to access we find many bathing establishments of great quality. Its sea is clear and always clean, with a light green color, thanks to shallow waters. Not far from the shore, in the locality "Pazze" it is possible to admire two small islets that are easily reachable even by swimming. The ecosystem consists of suggestive dunes immersed in typical Mediterranean vegetation, which give the landscape a further note of color and charm. During the summer there are numerous food and wine festivals, light music concerts, theatrical performances and important cultural events. On the second Sunday of August we celebrate the Madonna dell'Aiuto, with the particular procession at sea and an extraordinary fireworks display.
