City of light, colors and perfumes generated by its territory which, from the last edge of the southern Murgia, extends towards the plain of olive trees to reach the coasts of the Adriatic Sea, and offers to visitors: history, architecture, culture, folklore, healthy air and Mediterranean flavors.
Originally inhabited by the Messapians, Ostuni was influenced by the Greeks and Romans. Ostrogoths, Lombards, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Aragonese followed one another over the years.
From the year 1000 onwards, the city flourished from an economic, social and architectural point of view. If you are wondering what to see in Ostuni, the first recommended stop is certainly the castle built by the Normans, who contributed to enriching the city with sumptuous palaces and religious buildings.
