The travelling cognoscenti have well and truly fallen in love with the slow-paced, old-world unpretentiousness of Puglia, proclaiming it to be one of Italy’s last discovered gems. In reality, the place has been rediscovered every century or so, as its architectural heritage reveals, from the ancient Greeks who settled in the white-washed, hilltop villages where a Greek dialect is still spoken, to the mortar-free conical trulli and coastal watch towers dating back to the time of the Saracens, to Baroque towns like Lecce built by the Spanish, the German fortified castles of Frederick 11, the Romanesque churches of the Normans and so on. It is the combination of this vivid cultural diversity and the sybaritic pleasures of sun, sea and siesta, that gives Puglia its unique flavour and texture.
