Alta Murgia, flavours and atmosphere

Alta Murgia

Discover the wealth of the Murgia as you walk along this route of smells, flavours and landscapes in the magical Castel del Monte area. Spring is the best time of year to appreciate the intensity of the natural environment in this territory, when the sun warms the aromatic herbs and the air fills with their scents, the golden earheads ripen and the pathways are dotted with wild flowers, but autumn is also very atmospheric, with cardoncello mushrooms in the fields and the warm colours of the vineyards. Every step along the way reveals beautiful views and fascinating atmospheres, and when you stop there are typical local flavours to experience with the taste of renewed traditions.

Don’t miss:

  • A guided tour of Castel del Monte
  • the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sabato and the Cave of San Michele
  • a stroll through Andria’s old town and a visit to its Cathedral

What to try:

  • discover the seasonal vegetables and wild herbs of the Murgia in the kitchen garden of a country chef
  • see how they make the famous burrata
  • try the classic tenerelli and visit the Museo del Confetto (Sugared Almond Museum)
  • wines and olive oils in the territory’s wineries and olive oil presses
