our laptop, all our valuables, and almost our whole campervan, when it

We spent the next couple of days in the ´heel of the boot´, around the lovely town of Lecce with its stately squares and grand sandstone buildings, then to Otranto, with its ornate cathedrals, both highlights of the region.

The ¨Heel´- a great place to spend a few days.
