IWASI 2019 attendees are invited to a guided tour of Otranto.
The tour will consist of a suggestive walk through the Otranto’s beauties, such as the old town alleys and the seafront, under the sunset light.
The guided tour will comprise a visit to the Otranto Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Otranto; Basilica Cattedrale di Santa Maria Annunziata).
The cathedral hosts a floor mosaic, which is one of the most important examples of 12th-century art. It prominently features the Tree of Life growing and branching out into aisles, apses, and presbytery to represent the theological itinerary of salvation, from original sin to redemption.
The tour will also comprise a visit to the “San Pietro” church in the Otranto old town.
The tour will conclude at the 19.30, when a bus will wait the attendees close to the Otranto's Castle to conduct them to the social dinner at “Il Villino” in Santa Cesarea Terme! Enjoy your guided tour!
