Venetian Palace – Galatone (LE)
Prestigious historical residence in the heart of Galatone, belonging to the most famous family of the city, with its elegant and noble front is located on the main street of the historic center. The building, of ancient origins and completed in the early ‘900, is in pure Venetian style full of friezes and decorations made entirely by hand by refined artisans of the time.
The property is on two levels, ground floor and first floor, both of large size and with several rooms covered by various types of decorated vaults.
The ground floor consists of two apartments, several rooms used as storage and two garages; at the back of the building an elegant inner courtyard and a citrus grove. From this level you access a comfortable and illuminated mezzanine covered with Lecce vaults.
A refined entrance with a mosaic floor leads to the first floor through an elegant and comfortable staircase. Here we find the noble apartment with large rooms, full of light and internal and external views, as well as two large terraces on the level.
The entire solar pavement, panoramic on the historical center of Galatone, is as extensive as the first floor and can be reached via an internal masonry staircase, at this level there is an ancient attic.
The entire building, structurally sound, requires restructuring and conservative restoration. Good potential to become a tourist-receptive structure given its distribution and architectural characteristics, as well as its excellent geographical position compared to Lecce, Nardò and the sea of Porto Selvaggio and Gallipoli.
