Taranto is a coastal city in Apulia, Southern Italy.
Taranto is called "The City of Two Seas". Located on a spit of land that separates the open sea, it divides what are known as Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo.
An artificial channel connects the two parts of the city. It is surmounted by the famous Swing Bridge, beyond which lies the heart of old Taranto, an ancient Medieval town comprised of the Cathedral of San Cataldo, the Aragonese Castle, also known as Castel Sant'Angelo, and many other monuments that recount of its ancient origins.
Taranto is also an important commercial and military port with well-developed steel and iron foundries, oil refineries, chemical works, naval shipyards, and food-processing factories.
Made with two discs of buttery puff and stuffed with béchamel, mozzarella and just a touch of tomato, the rustico is generally eaten in Lecce and the Salento for breakfast or as an afternoon or late night snack.
