Villa Comunale Giuseppe Garibaldi
Viale XXV Luglio
At the center of this complex there is an elegant round temple, part of the college of the Marcellian nuns. Around this, on the edges of the tree lined avenues, there are marble urns from which you can learn the history of the most important characters from Otranto. Scipione Ammirato, Giuseppe Palmieri, Oronzo Massa, Giuseppe Pisanelli are just some of the figures represented. The busts were all erected around 1887, by Eugenio Maccagnani. To the left of the villa is the O. Gabriele Costa school, housing paleontological collections of important fossils found around Novoli.
