Location

Car: necessary
Other Activities:

Zoosafari

Fasonolandia is an animal attraction and theme park in Fasano. The park

includes a drive through safari park in the visitor's own vehicle as well as a

walk around animal area, animal shows and several rides. From the centre of

Locorotondo the Zoo is only 15 minutes’ drive, approximately 10.6km.

Alberobello has

been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of trulli, and

conical-roofed houses which are all painted white, built from local limestone,

with dry-stone walls. They are fairytale like huts built in the 14th Century.

There are a good number of restaurants, but to enjoy the local cuisine, look

for something which is away from the tourist traps.

Matera is a city

and a province in the region of Basilicata. The town lies in a small canyon

carved out by the Gravina (small stream and ravine). Coordinates: 40° 40'N

16°36'E. The place to visit is the historical centre called 'Sassi' considered

a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1993, along with the Park of the

Rupestrian Churches. In October 2014 Matera was declared Italian host of

European Capital of Culture for 2019. Until the 1980's the Sassi was considered

an area of poverty, since its dwellings were, and in most cases still

uninhabitable. Now due to tourism this area is now being regenerated. There are

many restaurants, cafe bars and hotels. There are many beaches with Lido

Bizzarro which is good for children. Torre Canne is a close beach and is safe. 

Lecce is a Baroque

City, it has a historic centre full of cherubs, and baroque masterpeices.

Sometimes described as the ‘Florence of the South’ Lecce’s history goes back a

long way - you can still see the ruins of a Roman Threatre and amphitheatre.

Things to see in Lecce – (Centro Storico) which you can spend a day or two

exploring picturesque little lanes. The Basilica di Santa Croce has a

fantastical façade, with ornamental strange beasts and allegories. The town has

two main focal points: Piazza Sant’Oronzo and Piazza del Duomo. There is also a

little tourist ‘train’ which stops at various points of interest. It’s worth

visiting the Roman theatre and its little museum in the centre of Lecce (Museo

Teatro Romano).

Carovigno is a

small unspoilt part of Puglia, on the outskirts the town is surrounded by olive

groves, and is only a short distance from the Adriatic Coast. The centre has

many fantastic bars and restaurants, and boasts a Michelin Star Restaurant.

Well worth a visit is the Santuario della Madonna del Belvedere, which is a

sanctuary. Please note suitable clothing is required to enter the church, as

you will not be permitted to enter if your shoulders are not covered and you

are wearing beach wear.

Beaches are clean

with a Nature reserve Torre Guaceto blissfully free from development, with its

rugged shores is a protected area, and allows its visitors to enjoy and escape

from the over developed beach resorts. There are plenty of opportunities to

observe plant and animal species usually scarce in this part of the world. A

mini shuttle service runs from the car parks, but to find your spot on the

beach, there may be some walking involved. The sea is clear, clean and warm.

There is a visitor centre 3km inland at Serranova which organises nature walks,

cycle trekking. There are also guided snorkelling trips.

Torre Guaceto is

also one of Puglia's top locations for kite surfing. There are water parks, and

a zoo in Fasano. Plenty to do if you have young children. 

Castellana Grotte

is a little country town famous for its caves or ‘grotte’ after which the town

is named. As the caves are on the edge of town, in high season Castellana is

not packed with day trippers. The town of Castellana stands on a hilltop

overlooking sweeping plains and vineyards. Its oldest street was built during

the 17th century so you’ll be able to stroll past the ornately frescoed Palazzo

Longo and enjoy the fascinating little shops and bustling restaurants. Anciient

churches, picture postcard piazzas and clock towers add to the charm.

The caves are open

all year round and offer an interesting day out for all ages, especially if the

weather is less than perfect. One of the largest cave complexes in Europe, it

contains a fascinating variety of rock formations, culminating in the

breathtaking ‘Grotta Bianca’ or ‘White Cave’. Entrance is with a tour guide

only and visits last around 2 hours. The sea is clear, clean and warm. There is

a visitor centre 3km inland at Serranova which organises nature walks, cycle

trekking. There are also guided snorkelling trips. Torre Guaceto is also one of

Puglia's top locations for kite surfing. There are water parks, and a zoo in

Fasano. Plenty to do if you have young children.

Torre Guaceto

Protected and managed by WWF Italy, the marine and nature reserve of Torre

Guaceto is an idyllic stretch of coastline, dedicated to the preservation of

wildlife and natural beauty. The last building to have been erected in this

area was the tower or ‘torre’, built in the 1500s by the Aragonese as a lookout

point for the advance warning of invading Turks. Closed off to cars, the

reserve is an amazing territory of biodiversity, from the oasis of birdlife in

the wetlands to the rich marine life of fish and coral reefs in the crystal

clear waters. Along the 7km of coastline, flanked, by beautiful sand dunes,

certain areas are open to the public for swimming and others are protected

areas to preserve the marine life. 

Wine and Cuisine

Puglia is a paradise for lowers of food and wine. The sunny climate creates

perfect conditions for the cultivation of magnificent olives, legendary grapes

and some of the most flavorsome vegetables you will ever taste. The region has

a rich agricultural tradition and as a result of the recipes use simple,

locally grown ingredients to fabulous ends. Not to be missed is the

mouth-watering Burrata cheese, which is a soft cheese, and has to be eaten of

the day of purchase. Puglia is the home to 50 million olive trees and produces

over 80% of Italy’s olive oil. Known for its strong, distinctive flavor, the

oil is recognized for its exceptional quality Puglia was also one of the first

places in Europe to produce completely organic olive oil. With so many miles of

coastline, 

Puglia has great

seafood. Mussels, prawns and clams abound in the many seafood restaurants and

you are sure to find exquisite dishes of bream, cod and sea bass. Around

February is the time of the ‘ricci’ or sea anemones, treasured for the delicate

red flesh and eaten either raw or cooked in a classic pasta dish using up to 50

anemones. This region has a long history of wine making, and is one of the

highest producing regions of Italy. 

One of the oldest

grapes in Europe the ‘Greco’ is grown here and used to great effect in the

excellent Greco del Tufo white wine. However, it is perhaps known for its red

wine that Puglia is becoming increasingly well-known. The ‘primitivo’ grapes,

particularly grown in the southern central area around Manduria has for many

years produced the full bodied, award winning ‘Primitivo di Manduria’. Also of

note is the ‘Salice Salentino’ a DOC wine using primarily the ‘negromaro’

grape. Most wines are, reasonably priced and the quality has improved

significantly in recent years. You can confidently order the house wine in

almost any restaurant, and be assured a very pleasant tipple at excellent value

for money. Beware the strength though! Puglia wines are amongst the strongest

in Italy, with an average of 14% alcohol content.

GOLF INFORMATION

 Savelletri

has an 18 hole golf course and is rated amongst the best in Italy. San Domenico

18 hole championship club on the crystalline Adriatic Sea has a combination of

good golf, good weather and good food. The myriad bunkers and fierce rough

characterise this championship layout.

Acaya Gold and

country Club is near Lecce, part of the Hilton resort and home to a Costantino

Rocca Academy, is perhaps the most welcoming of the five Puglia options, with

open fairways and receptive greens. Good for golfers with a moderate ability.

Barialto Gold Club

- just outside Bari is set around a central lake with the greens weaving

through an ancient olive grove. Riva dei Tessali Resort - on the coast of

Taranto with 18-holes. The fairways are carved through dense pine forests,

whilst there are no sea views the beach is not a million miles away.

Locorotondo has a labyrinth of streets and alleyways, in which to meander and explore. This City is known for its wines and for its circular structure. which is now a historical centre, from which derives its name, which means 'Round Place'. It is deep in the Itria Valley dotted with white prehistoric roundhouses called trulli. The houses are topped with unusual pitched roofs called 'cummerse' a feature typical of the historical centre. 

Locorotondo is a small town, located in the middle of Valle d'Itria Locorotondo, it is one of the most beautiful towns in Italy.

For this reason you can’t miss the beauty of this town, not very vast, but bursting with history and cultural wonders.  Locorotondo, “U Curdunne” as its called in the dialect of Bari, of which has about 14,000 inhabitants.

Initially Locorotondo was built at the foot of the hill, later broadened to the top. The extension came after a miracle of St. George the Martyr, when the population decided to build a chapel to the Saint so that later was proclaimed patron of the country. In about 1700, the passage of San Rocco from Locorotondo to save the population from the plague meant that it was hailed as the first saint of the village and was built in his honor with a chapel inside a precious statue of the Saint.

Locorotondo has a privileged geographical position, as it has the view on the Itria Valley and from its highest point one can observe all the surrounding villages, and this will be a landscape to be admired especially in the evenings at sunset of summer when the iridescent sky slowly darkens. Locorotondo is a very old country and for this rich in history, as you walk through the streets of the city you will find many churches and monuments that mark the various stages in the building of this town. 

In addition to this there are many events and evenings of culture which is ideal for all the family.
