Territory and Traditions
Renowned touristic destination, in 2009 Ostuni was awarded Bandiera blu (Blue Flag) and Five Sails by Legambiente for the cleanliness of its coast and its seawater and for the quality of the services it offers. In 2005, the Apulian Region acknowledged Ostuni as "touristic destination".
La Valle d'Itria is a portion of the central region of Puglia, at the crossroad between Bari, Brindisi and Taranto.
Alberobello is the ideal destination for a day trip in Puglia on summer sunny weekends, when all you want is to relax and rest. Alberobello has a unique old town with its trulli, which have become UNESCO Heritage for their stunning beauty. In addition to its typical houses, Alberobello has several natural areas where to rest and to enjoy the day having fun. Trully were first built in the prehistoric age. The oldest trulli still in place date back to the 14th century. Trully were built dry stone, with no cement. Limestones were carved out of rocks and then they were laid one on top of the other to create concentric rings, which will become narrower and narrower until they created the conical sum. Pinnacles on the top have several different shapes: crosses, stars, spheres, and many other Christian or propitiatory symbols. The pavement was made of thin skilfully polished limestones, named "chianche".
Located on the adriatic coastline in Salento, a few kilometers away from Carovigno and San Vito dei Normanni, the wonderful natural reserve named Torre Guaceto is a real oasis in between sea and land. This trait of the coastline, 6 kilometers long, includes a rich Mediterranean landscape which starts with sandy beaches and dunes and then it extends to the Mediterranean Maquis with its secular olive groves. With a fresh and clean air, this place inspires calm and inner peace. An enchanting place to enjoy a sunny day on the beach and to be in contact with wild nature.
