Capo d'Otranto (Faro della Palascia)

Punta Palascìa, commonly referred to as the “Cape of Otranto”, is located at the easternmost point of Italy. From the Otranto coast, visitors can see the Albanian coast (only 73-74 kilometers from the lighthouse) depending on weather conditions, the Albanian mountains!

The city’s recently renovated lighthouse is one of five lighthouses along the Mediterranean Sea protected by the European Commission. Punta Palascìa is often frequented by tourists during the New Year. Curious visitors stand outside to watch the first sunrise over the lighthouse, a New Year’s Eve tradition in Italy

According to nautical conventions, this place is located on the 40th parallel, the dividing point between the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea.
