Alta Murgia, atmosphere and taste

Alta Murgia

The monumental Romanesque cathedrals, with their imposing bell-towers watching over the coast and the hinterland are a feature of this area with its harsh and luxuriant, picturesque and fascinating landscape. From sandy beaches to vegetable plots by the sea, the coast-line offers a wide range of scenery, while the hinterland conserves the genuine charm of the old towns, grandiose villas and country farmsteads. Land and sea contribute in equal measure to the food traditions of this territory, with delicacies ranging from lamb to fresh fish, which you can also try raw down by the sea.

Don’t miss:

  • Trani’s Cathedral on the sea and its old town
  • the Epitaffio della Disfida, commemorating the Challenge of Barletta
  • Corato’s Museum: the Museo della Città e del Territorio
  • a guided tour of Castel del Monte
  • a stroll around Ruvo di Puglia with a visit to the Museo Jatta and the Co-cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta

What to try:

  • cookery school in Corato, to learn about making traditional dishes
  • discover olive oil and its culture in the Museo dell’Olio
  • wines and olive oils in the territory’s wineries and olive oil presses
