Castro – Importante località turistica, centro peschereccio e balneare, vanta origini antiche quale erede della romana Castrum Minervae. Fu una delle prime città del Salento ad essere elevata al rango di contea e fu anche sede vescovile fino al 1818. Ma Castro è famosa perché, si dice, vi approdò Enea. E’ il poeta Virgilio, nell’Eneide, a collocare il primo approdo di Enea in Italia a Castrum Minervae (di fronte a Butroto, nell’Epiro). il suo porto era dominato da un alto promontorio alla sommità del quale si ergeva il maestoso tempio consacrato alla dea Minerva. Gli scavi del 2007, che hanno interessato l’acropoli di Castro, hanno portato alla luce le tracce di un santuario probabilmente dedicato a Minerva, l’Atena dei Greci. Questa scoperta conferma il centro salentino come la mitica Castrum Minervae, approdo di Enea.
