VILLAGES AROUND THE PARK

After Brindisi, Fasano is the most populous municipality in the province. The city is located in a flat area characterized by olive groves; The territory stretches from the hills (with an altitude of 400 meters above sea level) to the sea. In the area of ​​Savalletri the coast is mainly made ​​up of cliffs and sandy coves; the coast of Torre Canne - which falls in the Park - is characterized by coastal dunes, sandy beaches and wetlands with characteristic Maquis shrubland. A few years ago the coast of Fasano has received the Blue Flag (Bandiera Blu)  for the cleanliness of the water and the services offered.

Pezze di Greco, with about 6,000 inhabitants, is the largest fraction of the town of Fasano. The original core of this territory is made ​​up of patches (in Italian Pezze) of lands of the masseria farm of the Greco’s family, from Martina Franca. Later, the land was divided into lots and sold to settlers; subsequently, in the farms, the settlers build the trulli that gave birth to the town, whose establishment dates back to 1823.

Pozzo Faceto, which is about 9 km from Fasano, is named after the shrine that houses the icon of the Madonna del Pozzo.

Montalbano is nearly 15 km from Fasano; it is the second fraction of the urban center by population (about 3,000). Its territory, in addition to the dolmen, houses many old farmhouses converted into holiday cottages.

The village named Speziale, 12 kilometers from the town of Fasano, is named after the pharmacist (the "speziale") that once lived there. In the area there are several farms and buildings in typical white milk of lime and original vaulted ceilings; of particular beauty is the church dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, dating back to the early years of the twentieth century. The town is surrounded by vast plantations of olive trees and is just a few kilometers from the sea.

Torre Canne, about 13 km from Fasano, is a popular seaside resort, famous for the therapeutic virtues of its thermal baths. The symbol of this area is the lighthouse that blinks at the coast, the cliffs and the sea. The name of Torre Canne is also linked to the cultivation of the common fig and tomato Regina, local variety of canning tomato that is grown in coastal saline soils of the Park, from Torre Canne to Egnatia, along the ancient Via Traiana.

Ostuni, the "white city", so called because of its old town, completely painted with white lime, is a famous tourist center, awarded by important Italian entities (Bandiera Blu and Cinque Vele)  for clean waters and the quality of services offered.

On the last stretch of the south-eastern Apulian Murgia (394 meters above sea level) is located Cisternino, overlooking the Itria Valley, dotted with trulli; Land of Bari until 1927, it is part of the prestigious club of the most beautiful villages in Italy and Communities Jewels of Italy.
