As for Sicily and Calabria, even in the case of this region it has to wonder, for varied landscapes, cultures, artistic styles, languages, cities, if you need to talk about one or more of Puglia.
The Trulli of Alberobello or the Romanesque of the Terra di Bari? Castel del Monte or the Baroque of Lecce? Seaside towns such as Otranto or Brindisi or the rural world of the Capitanata? The woods of the Gargano or the barren Murgia of Altamura? Discovering Apulia, a land of transit and border, is to enter in the diversity of the environments and the historical and cultural character, the latter no doubt due to exposure to the sea.
Poor of ground water but miraculously generous: vineyards, wheat fields and endless olive groves, from which spring products that have become famous all over the world and a legend in Italy, such as Primitivo di Manduria wine, the Bread of Altamura, the olive oil of Terre d’Otranto, without forgetting the cheeses, as the unsurpassed Burrata.
Apulia is the Italian East, it sometimes seems a distant appendage, but facing east, towards Greece, the Holy Land, Egypt, was and is the Overseas’s door.
