Ostuni rises on the last spurs of the southern Murgia. The old city, called La Terra, is unique for its entirely-white city centre. The lime-covered houses and its peculiar topography made Ostuni known as Città Bianca (white city), Regina degli Ulivi (queen of the olive trees) and Città Presepe (nativity-scene city). Famous tourist locality, it was awarded with a "bandiera blu" from 1994 to 2015 and the "five sails" of Legambiente for its clean water and its high-quality services, becoming the city with the cleanest sea in Italy. Besides, in 2005, Puglia recognised the municipality of Ostuni as "tourist locality".
Places to know and visit
The ancient nucleus - possible support of the messapian acropolis - is located on a hillside and has an oval plan, as the city walls with the aragonese towers show. Only eight towers out of the original fifteen are left, together with some parts of the bastions that surrounded the medieval city.
Ostuni is a fascinating tangle of narrow alleys, squares and boulevards that once ended with five doors set in the city walls, provided with towers and scaffoldings. Via Cattedrale is the only street that reaches the top of the "cone" and divides the historical centre in two parts, while all the other streets are dead ends or steep stairways. Here, there are houses excavated in the rock with arches and semi-arches that act as a buttress.
The ancient hamlet is what gives Ostuni its picturesque urban identity. It is called La Terra by the inhabitants of Ostuni. It rises on the highest hill of the area and is entirely white, full of floors, ups and downs, alleys and stairways, small streets that cross arches and squares. On the top, there is the monumental Cathedral and the Episcopal Palace.
In Ostuni, along its 17 km of coast, there are long beaches with dunes covered in mediterranean scrub and a series of sandy inlets and rocky coast. Its seafront is one of the main tourist attractions in Puglia.
Pilone: a sandy stretch with high dunes covered in centuries-old junipers, overlooked by the aragonese sighting tower of San Leonardo, built in the sixteenth century. Today, it is a regional natural reserve thanks to the presence of valuable habitats considered extremely important by the UE.
Monticelli: on the high dunes that give the name to the locality, it is possible to find a quiet atmosphere. In this area, many evidences of a village from the bronze age were found.
Villanova: where the ancient Petrolla (then called Villanova) was located. There is a small harbour for the fishermen's boats and vessels; the suggestive tower/castle of the sixteenth century overlooks the harbour.
Costa Merlata: called this way for its extremely rocky coast, with the sea that goes into the ravines and creates intimate sandy inlets.
Santa Lucia-Torre Pozzelle: a coast of incomparable beauty for its wild and uncontaminated nature; a series of inlets protected by high cliffs full of centuries-old junipers; it owes its name to the presence of a sixteenth-century sighting tower.
