Torre Canne is a beach resort that is officially part of Fasano. The town's natural hot springs have attracted visitors for more than a century, drawn to the curative mineral-rich waters which are also said to offer beauty remedies.
It's one of the few coastal towns that doesn't possess a defensive castle, but it does boast a tall and lovely lighthouse that still stands sentinel over the sea to protect sailors and add a dose of ambiance. The beaches here are the main attraction - long, wide swaths of golden sand fronting the shallow pristine waters of the Puglian part of the Adriatic. The town offers a quaint and laid-back atmosphere with beachfront restaurants and cafes and a smattering of shops.
Torre Canne is at the edge of the Valle d'Itri, and the whole area is lauded for its natural beauty. Aside from the sea and the hot springs, there are water sports as well as horseback riding available. In nearby Fasano is the ZooSafari, a wild animal park. The most interesting towns of Puglia are closeby - Ostuni, Locorotondo and Martina Franca, to name a few. Torre Canne is located south of Monopoli, about half-way between Bari and Brinidisi. The countryside is speckled with olive groves and antique masserie, the fortified farmhouses peculiar to Puglia.
