Puglia – the “heel” of Italy
Puglia (or Apulia) is the 'heel' of the boot of Italy. Stretching over 400km from Lecce and the Salento in the south, all the way to Foggia and the Gargano in the north.
Over the centuries Puglia has been ruled by Mycenaean Greeks, Romans, Normans, Hohenstaufen, Turks, Venetians, French and finally becoming part of the Kingdom of Italy - Puglia is a melting pot of cultures and peoples.
The home of the conical shaped 'trulli', Puglia also boasts impressive baroque styled cities, dramatic Norman architecture, African and Greek inspired historical centres, and a vast array of beaches along the endless Adriatic and Ionian coastlines.
Puglia is Italy's market garden, producing much of the fresh produce distributed around the country and further afield from vast expanses of olive trees and vineyards. Combined with the frutti di mare taken from the many fishing villages, this has resulted in food being one of, if not the, most important aspect of any Pugliesi's life!
