The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia occupies the entire heel of Italy, stretching from the spur, Monte Gargano in the north, to the tip of the toe in the south, the Salentine Peninsula.
This region is more surprising than any other region of the south and includes such diverse and unexpected surprises as the forests and limestone cliffs of the Gargano; the expansive tapestry of farmlands that is the Murge; the fantastical trulli of the Val d'Itria; stunning Byzantine, Baroque and Romanesque architecture; some of the oldest and most glorious olive trees in Italy; towns bearing the imprint of their Arab and Greek origins; beaches and sandy coves stretching the full length of the Adriatic and the Ionian coastlines.
This is the area that includes the Val d'Itria, a landscape peppered with the fairytale stone cones of the ubiquitous Trulli. They are unique to Puglia, their true origin as yet unknown, though it is thought they have their origins in the civilisations of North Africa and Greece.
Built of limestone with extremely thick walls and of dry stone construction, their conical roofs made up of three layers. The interior finished stone "candela" can be particularly beautiful, extending all the way up to the pinnacle. The outer layer is finished with upwardly decreasing concentric rings of horizontally laid limestone known as chiancarle. The pinnacle is usually finished with one of a number of gifferent symbolic plaster finials.
The olive is king here,the finest and most unctuous. Also there are almonds, pomegranates, oranges limes and lemons. The seafood, be it shellfish or wet is the freshest; Sea bass, octopus, squid, clams, mussels, the variety is vast and quality superb. Weekly markets in every town provide an outlet for locally grown vegetables and reared meats; lamb, pork, beef and other meats you might not be prepared for!
Olives however equal with the grape are the driving force of the agricultural economy in Puglia. This is only too evident when one sees the ancient trees still lovingly pruned and cared for. These ancient and gorgeous specimens instill a reverence and awe in all who see them.
This interior part of Puglia is very different to the coastal plains of both the Adriatic and Ionian seas, however the beaches of both coastlines provide endless variety and the closest are no more than 25 minutes drive away.
