ABOUT PUGLIA REGION:

 


DAUNIA and TAVOLIERE IN PUGLIA
The Daunian Subapennine marks the northwest boundary of Apulia and is characterized by few mountains, rocky hills, medieval towns, fields of windmills, poppies and sunflowers while the Tavoliere with the Candelaro river marking its boundary to the north and the Ofanto river to the south, is one of Italy`s largest "breadbaskets". It stretches out like a carpet with its changeable colours, and offers an excellent shelter to a rich fauna; here, in fact, the WWF has set up a reserve for the protection of wild geese and, at down and dusk, there is a breathtaking view, when thousands of birds take off, migrating from Africa to the Balkans. 

GARGANO IN PUGLIA
Gargano promontory, called the "spur of Italy", is a huge mass of limestone, caves, dolines, sinkholes and gorges, but also an amazing scenery of green Aleppo pines, orange groves, olive trees, tiny inlets covered with fine white sand, suggestive grottoes dotting the shores, rocky arches and sharp-edged monoliths rising out of the sea. In the middle of the Adriatic Sea, you can see the Tremiti Island, scattered like pristine splinters of coloured rock; Vico del Gargano town is a good starting point for trips to the beautiful Foresta Umbra, an impressive forest, that covers 11.000 hectares, with tall beech and oak trees, a thick undergrowth, a rich fauna, some natural and artificial ponds and sports facilities. 

MURGIA IN PUGLIA
Murgia is an internal area composed of limestone hills, in the centre of Apulia, from the Ofanto river to the Messapian isthmus, from the border of Basilicata to the Adriatic shores; it is divided into coastal Murgia, higher and lower Murgia. The little valley sloping gently down to the Adriatic are called "lame", whereas those directed to the Ionian Sea are steep gorges called revines "gravine". Apulian farmers removed from this area an immense quantity of rocks; driven by hunger and with indescribable sacrifices and loving care, they trilled a land, otherwise condemned to eternal squalor. Today, thanks to them, Puglia is renowned for its fabulous deep green olive oil and produces more grapes, both for eating and wine-making, than any other region in Italy; it produces one-tenth of the wine consumed in Europe but also oat, wheat, barley, artichokes, broccoli, cabbages, fennels, lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, sugar beets, citrus fruits, almonds, aubergines, peppers, figs and tobacco. Eating is a favourite pastime in Puglia and the apulian dishes are delicious; they are finely and accurately prepared, respecting the old recipes of the Mediterranean diet. A landscape rich in vineyards and olive groves is the Itria Valley; it stands in the lower Murgia and splits among Locorotondo, Cisternino, Alberobello and Martina Franca. The area is famous for its spontaneous rural architecture constitute by dry-stone walls marking the field boundaries and the Trulli, cylindrical buildings with conical roof. These dwellings were built from the farmers to clear the fields and make the rocky soil suitable for cultivation. Today, the old town of Alberobello is recognised as a World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. In the coastal Murgia stands some suggestive towns for their artistic heritage, favourable climate, unpolluted sea, traditions, hospitality and natural beauty. Here, the adventurous course of history has left its indelible signs; the Greeks, Romans, Lombards, Byzantines, Normans, Swabians, Angevins, the House of Aragon up to the Bourbons have left cultural treasures. The Cathedral of Trani is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful Romanic-Apulian churches and the most suggestive in Italy while Polignano a Mare, suspended on the horizon that divides the blue sky from the clear sea, is a pearl of Apulia. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations of the great Adriatic coast thanks to its particular reef along which open natural grottoes and its network of alleys winding among whitewashed houses and terraces offering breathtaking views on the Adriatic Sea. 

SALENTO IN PUGLIA
Salento is a vast plain stretching from the Messapian isthmus, between Taranto and Brindisi, to Santa Maria di Leuca. The landscape is characterized by picturesque cliffs fall sheer to the sea while Salento`s west coast is low and sandy, with vast and shady pinewoods, occasional carsick grottoes and a promontory lashed by the sea, the port town of Gallipoli. The seabed along the Puglia coast have always played a vital role for the shore populations, testified by the great number of well-developed sea towns and the character of Apulians, their way of thinking and acting, is a perfect reflection of this age-old relationship between man and sea.
