Taranto Old town

Interesting
The oldest entrance to the historic town is via the swing-bridge built in 1886 and restored in 1958. To the east of the island is the Aragonese castle, nowadays the Naval headquarters. The historic town is depicted by a dense network of winding lanes, dilapidated facades and abandoned palaces. Washing hanging from the windows and popping vespa scooters complete this characteristic portrait of southern Italy.
