Ostuni "The white city"

Written by Natascia

Ostuni, the last stretch along the Southern Murgia in the province of Brindisi and known as the "White City" appears to tourists as a white spot on top of a steep sloping hill.  Ostuni dominates a dense territory of age-old olive groves that extend down to the sea. Its walls enclose a perfectly preserved medieval district characterised by a labyrinth of little narrow streets, steps, arches, small squares and little balconies, all fully painted in white lime paint, the reason for the name "White City".  The Ostuni coastline today is a widely known tourist bathing attraction in Puglia and there are lots of bathing establishments along the coast, including Il Pilone, Rosamarina, Monticelli, Diana Marina, Villanova, Gorgognolo, Costa Merlata, Santa Lucia, Torre Pozzella and Lamaforca.  The coast along Ostuni is about 20 km long and alternates between long beaches and dunes covered in Mediterranean maquis and includes the Regional Nature Reserve, sandy bays and rocky coastline. Thanks to this, it is possible to choose between Rosamarina Beach, with its fine sand beach and little rocks, and Lamaforca Cliff composed of a host of small beaches reachable only by foot.
