One of the prettiest towns in the Brindisi province of Puglia is Ostuni. This charming, fortified hill town is known as La Città Bianca (The White City) due to its whitewashed buildings and city walls which give it a very exotic feel, more Greek or Middle Eastern than Italian. The stark white of the town is broken up by some beautiful historical architecture, all of which stands out majestically from its surroundings
The "Citta Bianca" looks like built of white and light and its visit is an unforgettable experience.
The breathless landscape on the lower valley and the blue sea suddenly opens when turning the old town corners.
The old town centre, called Terra, in the same time monument and place of the Historical Memory, is a maze full of amazing charme, keeping the Medieval Architecture, made of little and narrow streets and arches, surrounded by the powerful City Walls.
The White Maze, lime painted, named "CITTA' BIANCA", is interrupted by the ochre faces of ancient palaces, the churches, the fanciful portals exalting the beauty of the local stone.
The ancient Messapic City, was conquered by the Romans, which have left traces in the ancient town and in the "MASSERIE", built on the remains of Romans Villas. Ostuni has been pillaged by Hannibal and after it has been rebuilt by the Greek settlers and probably the white color of the houses depends on this colonization
After the Roman Empire Fall, Ostuni was prey of the Longobards, the Byzantine, the Saracens and the Normans. The territory of Ostuni has been already inhabited by Palaeolhytical Neanderthalian hunters: traces of this colonization are well kept in the Phalaeolhtycal Civilizations Museum in the old Church of the S. Vito Martire in the old town of Ostuni.
Ostuni was elected City of Art on 1998 because of its historical, artistic beauties and for its land: what the visitors appreciate is the binomial culture-environment. Ostuni, is a very ancient town with a great patrimony to be still discovered in part.
The City of Ostuni is in the middle of the Puglia Region: it will be easy to visit the City of Lecce and its famous and unique Baroque, the City of Bari and its Gotic Architecture and the Magna Grecia City of Taranto and its historical Museum.
The stay in Ostuni is strategic for visiting the nearby places: Valle D'Itria, Alberobello, Egnazia, Caves of Castellana, Polignano a Mare and many others.
