The Puglia/Molise region

ITALY. Puglia, the remote heel of Italy's boot, dramatically combines fairytale cottages, Baroque churches and Pagan dances. This captivating region is served by two airports in the towns of Bari and Brindisi, but the area is not an obvious destination for foreign visitors. Italian families return every year in July and August to the half-board hotels, campsites and tourist villages that proliferate the coast. But handsome Monopoli and Polignano towns such as Martina Franca and the engaging Lecce - the 'Florence of the Baroque', see only a handful of visitors each day. And if you decide to explore some of the area's more remote Basilian chapels or prehistoric dolmens, you will be gloriously alone. There are plenty of reasons why Puglia, Italy's heel, has become increasingly popular with British and foreigners in general visitors and with a little exploration they will be revealed.

Much of Puglia is flat, but that's not the whole story. Two seas – the Adriatic to the east, the Ionian to the west – have sculpted coastlines of smooth beaches, rocky coves and sheer cliffs. The Gargano National Park, which bulges into the Adriatic at Puglia's north-eastern point, provides a precious habitat for wildlife in its forests, wetlands and sunbathed slopes. At the region's heart, the soft green meadows of the Valle d'Itria (Monopoli, Ostuni, Cisternino, Locortondo, Martina Franca) unfold on the Murgia plateau, studded with trulli, circular stone houses with conical roofs straight from the pages of a child's fairy tale. A trip to the beach offers relief from the heat, and there are plenty along 800km of coast. Sands and Rock, fabulous for your day time on the beach.

Trulli country

Puglia was destined to be a tourist hit once the world discovered the Valle d'Itria Area. These pastures, fringed with dry-stone walls, are home to trulli, the simple peasant dwellings, dating largely from the 19th century. It's said the rough stone piles, built without mortar, were designed to be easily dismantled when tax inspectors passed. They functioned as shelters, storage spaces and homes. Their enchanting looks have made them popular as holiday homes. You can still see many in their natural state, grey and crumbling, but far more have been spruced up, their fat walls and stubby orb-topped pinnacles painted brilliant white. The heart of trulli country is around the towns of Ostuni, Martina Franco, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Monopoli. But Alberobello is the trulli capital where one hillside is covered by about a thousand of them, a Unesco World Heritage Site marred only by its dual status as a tourist trap, with gaudy souvenir tat.

Local flavour

Puglia is a culinary treat, home of burrata, a luxurious mozzarella filled with cream and shredded pieces of local cheese. Mozzarella, Parmigiana (fried egg plant with tomato, mozzarella and basil). Orecchiette Pasta with vegetables "rape", focaccia with tomato and mervellous "panzerotti" stuffed with several flavour mozzarella and tomato, tunna and onion, meat, ricotta forte. Wash it all down with the local wine; the reds are particularly good. For fish, eat near the beach; gamberi rossi, red prawns and row food, are superb.

Polignano a Mare

Monopoli city. A mighty fortress on the coast. A City of nearly 50,000 inhabitants, on the Adriatic coast, 45 km southeast of Bari close to the towns of Polignano a Mare, Conversano, Castellana Grotte, Alberobello and Fasano. The City of Monopoli spreads over 15 km of coastline and many coves, sandy beaches and rocks, in the town, one more reason for vacationers and tourists to choose Monopoli as a destination to spend their holidays. The medieval town, with its churches and museums, is emerging today, thanks to major restoration work, such as the complex of fortifications of the Castle of Charles Vth. The City of Monopoli is also known for its 150km-vast rural area divided into 99 districts, hence the nickname “City of the districts”. Hectares of land by the great natural beauty, landscape and culture, with huge expanses of ancient olive trees that occupied the red earth for ages.

Not to be missed is the Madonna della Madia(December 16 and 15 August) religious happening, protector of the city. Every year many devotees and residents relive the episode of the landing of the raft, carrying an icon of the Virgin. It is an interesting historical events related to the landing of the Byzantine icon of the Madonna della when the roof of the Cathedral of Monopoli could not be completed due to lack of money. The insistent urging of Bishop Romualdo to the citizens to pray the Virgin Madonna della Madia to help them completing the church sprang the miraculous landing of the icon, which is still the protector of the city. The icon arrived in Monopoli dawn of December 16, 1117, carried by a raft of beams which formed the roof of the church. Following this miraculous event, the new cathedral, originally dedicated to St. Mercury, was dedicated to the Madonna della Madia.
