San Vito dei Normanni (Santu Vitu in local dialect) is an Italian town of 19,947 inhabitants of the province of Brindisi in Puglia. The inhabitants are called Sanvitesi (Santuvitisi in dialect) and the town is sometimes referred to as San Vito. The town is located in the northeast of the Salento plains, not far from the Itria Valley. The geomorphology of the land is flat, slightly undulating on the border with the municipalities of Carovigno and Ostuni. It is located 9 kilometres (6 miles) from the Adriatic coast, the port nearest beach Specchiolla, a historic marine residence of San Vito. San Vito also is 5 km (3 mi) from the Torre Guaceto, located in Serranova, a nature reserve, accessible by foot or bicycle (Pennagrossa Point), and 12 km (7 mi) from the tower which gives its name to the protected area. The Ionian Sea is about 45 km (28 mi). Its altitude is around 100 metres (328 feet) above sea level precisely between 57–146 m (187–479 ft). The highest point of the city center is located in Contrada Castello d'Alceste, 1,190 m (3,904 ft) asl. The nature of the San Vito soil is limestone. The landscape is characterized by cultivated fields with oak and olive trees and divided by stone walls used to separate farms. The distances from major cities of Puglia are: Based on averages of thirty years reference (1961–1990), the average temperature of the most cold month January, stands around 9.5 °C (49.1 °F), while that of hot month, August, is around 25 °C (77 °F). Precipitation averages, less than 600 mm (23.6 in) per year. Climate classification of San Vito: The name of the city should be attributed to the Slavs or Slavonia. To escape the persecutions of the Saracens, they immigrated to the opposite coast of the Adriatic, settling in late 963 in the fertile regions of Puglia. Since then the town was simply called St. Vitus, Saint Vitus of Slavs or even San Vito in Terra d'Otranto. In 1863, after being returned to the Kingdom of Italy (1861) San Vito degli Schiavoni changed its name and assumed its current San Vito dei Normanni in honor of the man who is considered the founder of the medieval village, Bohemond of Hauteville (1050–1111 ), son of Robert Guiscard. Archaeological remains of a tomb in the Mondescine area contain the remains of thirty burials and various ceramics dating to 1800 BC - 1700 BC, show that the area was inhabited during the Bronze Age
