Castellaneta is a municipality in the province of Taranto, in the Regional Park of the Gravine, a protected oasis that extends for 400 hectars. On the coast there is Castellaneta Marina, completely surrounded by the greenery of the pinewood Bosco Pineto, extended for 9 km along the coast. Castellaneta offers its visitors fancy clubs, a sandy shore, scented pinewoods and a clean crystal-clear sea that was awarded with a "bandiera blu".

Castellaneta Marina is also full of history. In its suggestive landscapes there are rocky churches, "masserie", ancient villages and archeological evidences dated back to the prehistory and the middle age. Its historical centre has a medieval structure with ancient palaces: Palazzo Catalano, Palazzo Baronale, Palazzo Sarapo. In the modern area of Castellaneta there are many historically/culturally important churches: the Church of San Francesco d'Assisi, the eighteenth-century Church of San Michele, the gothic Church of Santa Maria della Luce with numerous frescos, the Church of San Rocco and the Church of San Domenico.

The area of Castellaneta Marina is characterized by fossil dunes that have a great natural and scientific value. The "gravine", cliff edges, are another peculiar characteristic of this heavenly place. The most suggestive cliff is the Gravina Grande that surrounds the ancient hamlet. Its seafront is full of amusement parks, discotheques, shopping centres, golf courses, stables, hotels and restaurants.
