Galatina (Greek: Galatini), known before the unification of Italy as San Pietro in Galatina, is a town and comune in the Province of Lecce in Apulia, southern Italy.
Among the most important cities in Salento, it is situated some 21 kilometres (13 mi) south of the city of Lecce.
In the neighbourhood is the small church of St. Paul. It houses a pump which, according to tradition, was able to heal people bitten by poisonous tarantulas (those bitten are called tarantati or pizzicati in the local dialect).
Galatina has a station on the Ferrovie Sud-Est line to Lecce. Road connections include the SS16 Adriatica state highway, the SS101 state road, also to Lecce, and the SS 613 Brindisi-Lecce highway.
Near Galatina there is the static inverter plant of HVDC Italy-Greece.
