About Puglia

Puglia in the heel of Italy’s famous boot”, offers a slow pace, stun­ning beach­es, great food, authen­tic vil­lages and won­der­ful year-round sun­ny weath­er. Part of the charm of South­ern Italy’s ris­ing star is its slow approach to every­day life. Cen­turies old farm­land are hemmed by a superb sun-bleached sandy coast and attract trav­ellers look­ing for a lit­tle more authen­tic­i­ty and the peace­ful nature of this region.

Puglia has plen­ty of archi­tec­tur­al inter­est, as each rul­ing dynasty left its own dis­tinc­tive mark on the land­scape – the Romans their agri­cul­tur­al schemes and feu­dal lords their for­ti­fied medieval towns. Per­haps most dis­tinc­tive are the kas­bah-like quar­ters of many towns and cities, a ves­tige of the Sara­cen con­quest of the ninth cen­tu­ry – the one at Bari is the biggest and most atmos­pher­ic. The Nor­mans endowed Puglia with splen­did­ly ornate cathe­drals while the Baroque exu­ber­ance of towns like Lec­ce and Mar­ti­na Fran­ca are tes­ta­ment to the Span­ish legacy. 

Puglia is also known as the bread­bas­ket of Italy. It is the source of 80 per­cent of Europe’s pas­ta and much of Italy’s fish; it pro­duces more wine than Ger­many and more olive oil than all the oth­er regions of Italy com­bined. It is famous for olives, almonds, dark juicy toma­toes (often sun-dried), cime di rapa (turnip tops), fava beans, figs (fresh and dried), cotog­na­ta (a mould­ed jam made from quince) and for its mel­ons, grapes and green cauliflower.
