San Giorgio Ionico

 

 

San Giorgio Ionico is located along the slopes of the Sierra of Belvedere. Its origins go back to the III century BC as shown by findings of remains of Iron Age, Hellenistic and Roman structures. But the modern town was only founded in the X century by some refugee escaping Taranto under Saracens attack.

An interesting building inside the centre of the town is the fortified residence built between the XV and XVI century on a rectangular plan with a cornice, corbels and a tower.
