Villa Rodogallo. Its name recalls the ancient settlement that gave origin to the Sannicola village. A 18th century majestic building located at the end of a long age-old pine tree path. Just 7 km away from Gallipoli, the Villa stands in the Santese family estate with vineyards, olive and orange trees. The guests are welcomed in a large square with volcanic stone floor and surrounded by 4 neo-classical columns topped with large vases.The four columns probably replaced the only one that used to show the entrance to the Laura Basiliana of Santa Maria de Atoca mentioned in the parchment n.7 in august 1191 of the San Mauro Abbey or of Santa Maria de Ligero locate north-east of Alezio.
The Villa still preserves the charm of the XVII century noble houses where eminent guests used to arrive from the three alleys by harnessed carriages and coachmen in livery. Delicious food and firstlings from the Otranto land were offered to the guests.
The House has two floors and it is completed by a chapel with mosaic pavement dated back to “1810”. The peculiar shade of red of the building is in a beautiful contrast with the green of the surrounding countyside. Through an arch beside the private church you reach the garden with its many coloured flowers of rare species.
