One of the oldest towns in Puglia, dated back to the 15th century BC and has one the largest and most preserved historical center of the region. The medieval city has a perimeter of around 5km was once the economic trade center of the area. It is located between Brindisi and Taranto, approximately 11km south of Ostuni.
The town itself is filled with historic tours, church & cathedral vists, in particular the Castelle Ducale. Outside the town walls we highly recommend a day exploring the numerous caverns & grottos. The surrounding countryside is filled with excellent many Trulli, most with private pools to enjoy a relaxing holiday but also with easy access roads to navigate explore this wonderful region, even in peak season Puglia does not seem to become a mass of tourists.
There town has recently become a popular gastronomic center therefore comes with a choice of many fine restaurants all priced reasonably. During June to September there seems to be a food or wine festival every week, with music, dancing, processions and mainly to discover local produce.
If you would like a day off from the beach then we recommend a visit to Ceglie Messapica for a day.
