There are important watchtowers in the village: and in the wilderness of the Porto Selvaggio cove, the cavern of the horse was passed down to us by the so-called Uluzian civilization of the middle and upper Palaeolithic.
Studies conducted by the University of Salento, between 1988 and 2005, on the plateau of Serra Cicoria, document a necropolis of the 5th millennium BC providing a valuable breakthrough in the cultural reality of Neolithic populations in southern Italy.
The Wildlife Park of Porto Selvaggio, with its breath-taking panorama, and just north of the Captain's Swamp, a karstic slope links to the protected marine area of Porto Cesareo, making these the naturalistic jewels on the Salento Sea, which encircle Santa Caterina.
