The board of Capitanata, the most plain Italian after la Padania, is an immense field of fine wheat. The rest, the Land of Bari and the Terra d Otranto, olive groves, vegetable gardens, orchards, and vineyards.

They bloom in spring, the almond trees, the fig tree, winding marks the sunny landscape. A large land-agricultural (not pastoral, as when they came down the flocks from the mountains of Abruzzo), the workshop green.

The agrarian landscape, the economic reality is almost never a motivation to travel.
Then why come to Puglia?
For the sea, the sun, and more. The sea of unspeakable coastline of rocks, beaches, warm clear waters; the sun high in the sky so often without clouds, the sun abbacina on the milk of lime of the walls of the countries, draws out the shifting shadows of the olive groves, warm on the skin, are constantly dampened by the sea breeze.

The"other" has the same charm. Four themes: the Gargano, the Gravina, the romanesque and the trullo.
The peninsula of the peninsula, the Gargano is a compilation exciting of the mountain, the silent forest, countries ingrumati, a rare vestige, rocks, aerial over the sea. The Ravine was the ravine that sometimes splits the Highlands calcareous murge: a Gravina in Puglia, to the Slaughter, and elsewhere, sforacchiata from the caves, it was in the early middle Ages, intensively used to produce cave dwellings, chapels, monks ' cells, churches underground that, also for the frescoes of byzantine in character, constitute a chapter singular and rare heritage of Italian art.

The romanesque is an expression of convenient to locate, in the rich local artistic tradition, that amazing moment when you came to this land of stone, for the rimescolarsi of obscure influences and legacies of the romans, byzantines, arabs, lombards, northern), the architecture of the cathedrals and castles of which do not cease to explore the intelligent variety of spaces great and robust, is a sculpture of the formidable vigor (it is not a coincidence that, in the documents, Nicola Pisano carried out as a "de Apulia", was pugliese who emigrated).

The creative moment is extended in the gothic (which this must be said, at least for history, Castel del Monte of frederick ii), and is renewed once again into the fantastic "baroque of lecce".

The trullo, the construction of a false vault of slabs of limestone that characterizes a part of the Murgia, and much more than a curiosity building in this region of the vocation architectural: it is the summary of the old relationship with the environment, knows the toil of the fields exhausted palm to palm from the stones, the fruits of the earth made to be born from the clod, protected by innumerable dry stone walls, the tenacity, the enduring of the past suffered when we contemplate the flower.
