What to do in the region?

Puglia has a monument of great architectural value: the Castel del Monte in Andria. Let yourself be charmed by this octagonal fortress. Built in 1200, it is now the subject of numerous studies.

The area is long and narrow, like a peninsula surrounded by two mothers. The beauty of its beaches, from Gargano to Salento, is derived from this.
