The Blue Grotto of Salento

La Grotta Azzurra (the Blue Grotto) of Castro beckons explorers inside. The grotto, accessible only by sea and famous for its cobalt luminescence, lies open along the Adriatic Sea coastline of the Salento in the Puglia region of Southeastern Italy.


  1. Wow, is it really that blue? Nicely done. You know you could enter this photo in the Photo Friday challenge this week too. Their theme is vivid and that’s pretty vivid. I mostly combine these challenges, it’s more…um…challenging. 🙂


    1. Veronica – Thanks for viewing the frame and your comments. Yes, it’s that blue, cobalt blue, that is; and, that’s the attraction of this grotto. I’m not aware of a Friday photo challenge. Care to enlighten me? Thanks.


      1. It’s a Friday call out for photographs along a theme. Just a fun little something to share with like-minded people. At You know how these challenges go…you can get up to your neck in them, but, as a photographer, I like to complicate things so combine them. 🙂


  2. We were able to experience the blue grotto in Capri! It was very interesting and quite tough to get a decent picture. It felt somewhat rushed since there was still a large crowd waiting to go in. We’ll be blogging about it in the future 🙂
