“La Città Bianca” of Ostuni | Puglia, Italy | The White Town of Ostuni. Transiting, from north to south, the lovely Valle D’Itria, province of Brindisi, in the region of Puglia, South of Italy, along the coast of the Adriatic Sea, I did a brief stop at the White City of Ostuni. From the road below, it appears like a mirage of white light. From the ancient town, up the hill, you can admire beautiful scenery. Via Cattedrale, divides the medieval heart named Terra in two. Stroll through the narrow alleys, steep stairways, craft shops, and restaurants, courtyards and piazzas, where white houses are dotted with geraniums. The 15th century Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral has a beautiful rare 24 rays rose portal. After are walk through the town, we stopped for lunch at Relais La Sommita , to experience one-Michelin-starred restaurant, Cielo. Stylish menus featuring seasonal offerings by Chef Sebastiano Lombardi , who was recently awarded its first Michelin star. His stylishly combined dishes promise a journey through the senses of the past and present, with projection into the future where the comforting flavours of the earth will reign strong. Visit Ostuni square with Saint Oronzo’s column. The region around Ostuni has been inhabited since the Stone age. Ostuni’s main economic activities include tourism, attracted by its nearby pristine beaches, historical architecture in the city and its surroundings, as well as a vibrant olive and grape agribusiness. Totally worth the visit. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
