Also known as "Le Puglie" in the plural form, this region contains, in fact, many souls. The “heel of Italy's boot," Apulia is a charming region that can be visited all year round and is suspended among nature, history, tradition, tastes and spirituality.
Apulia, the spur of the Italian Boot, is an enchanting region that spreads lengthwise along the sea - marvelous beaches that will delight every traveler, from the sandy Torre dell'Orso and Porto Cesario, to the rocky, boulder-encrusted Riviera of Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca. At Santa Maria di Leuca the calm and crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea mix with those of the intense and azure Adriatic. Sea lovers have multiple options in Apulia, from Gallipoli, the “Gem of Salento,” to Gargano, “Italy's Buttress,” which protrudes out into the clear sea, where one finds the the beautiful Tremiti Islands.
Nature is the protagonist again in the Murgia National Park, and in Gargano's wild Umbra forest, its salt pans and lakes. Visit the marine reserve of Torre Guaceto and the deep ravines of Laterza and wide dolines (depressions in the terrain) of Altamura characterize the hinterland of the region with their charming landscapes. For those who want to travel through history, Apulia offers a wide range of places that testify to the ancient origins of this land: from prehistory to Magna Graecia, from the Imperial Age to the Renaissance and the Baroque splendor of Lecce and of Salento. The trulli, for example those of Valle d'Itria, offer an evocative testimony to the rural past of the region. Meanwhile, numerous castles dot the coasts of the southern coast, hinting at an era when both perils and commerce landed on these shores.
For who is interested in tradition and folk music, should attend the numerous festivals and fish sagre that in summertime run throughout the region.
A deep-rooted tradition attributes the foundation of the city of Alessano to Alexius I Comnenus, Byzantine emperor, but there are no documents on the origins of the city. They were certainly the Normans Alessano to assign a prominent role throughout the Cape of Leuca, which will continue for a long time. It is in this time that, probably, the city became a bishopric, it will remain until 1818. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries Alessano lived his season peak. Under the rule of important noble families (the Della Ratta, Del Balzo, De Capua, and finally the Gonzaga), the city became an important commercial center, attracting even families of wealthy Venetian merchants and a small Jewish community (which had a synagogue via della Giudecca), and the urban fabric was enriched of valuable buildings in Renaissance style that can still be admired. Around the ducal court flourished a significant literary movement. Subsequently the center declined, until gradually lose prominence.
Montesardo with his position carratteristica natural fortress, has origins are lost in the mists of time. Have recently been discovered traces important era structures messapica (remains of the walls of the fourth century BC, tombs, foundations of buildings) showing that already at that time this was a settlement of considerable size. The documents of the Roman period "Mons arduus", which means "steep hill", is marked on the Via Traiana. In the Middle Ages it was the seat of important schools of mathematics and music.
After the fall of the empire was always used as a fortress, with its massive ramparts and a solid circle of walls, punctuated by towers, which opened in four ports: port the Earth, Nova door leads Castle and The Closed door. The walls and towers were demolished in 1867.
