Ugento is 106 kilometers from Brindisi Airport, 55 from Lecce, 23 form Gallipoli and 26 from Santa Maria di Leuca. The city of Ugento is situated on the Gulf of Taranto. The territory was inhabited by the Messapians, the autochthonous population of Salento. On its territory, in fact, there were many archaeological finds.

Since the eleventh century, the city has hosted the important Episcopal See.
