Roman history has emerged from the sea of Salento. In San Cataldo, a few kilometers from Lecce: 'Hadrian's Pier', so named in homage to the Emperor who ordered its reconstruction, is revealed by the aerial shots of Emiliano Peluso.

Cited in Pausania's works in the second century after Christ and visited by Octavian, in ancient times the port was connected to the city and is now resurfacing thanks to a campaign of excavations that has revealed its visible features.
