The town of Locorotondo, which is called after its characteristic circular shape and which overlooks the Itria Valley, is considered one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy, and has been awarded the Orange Flag by the Touring Club.
Situated 430 metres above sea level, Locorotondo boasts a particularly varied rural territory, with   expanses of olive groves, orchards, vineyards, and woods, among which, trullos, farms (so called “masserias”) and the so called “cummerse”, small, whitewashed houses having a regular geometrical shape and  a pitched roof, today used for tourist accommodation, can be found.
The historical centre is the old core of Locorotondo, which with its flowered balconies and paved alleys, allows tourists to immerse  themselves in the most authentic and charming Puglia. At each corner you can admire its wonderful churches of Baroque style, among which there are the church of Our Lady of the Sorrows, of the Holy Spirit, of St.Nicholas, of St.Rocco and of Our Lady of the Chain.
Finally you cannot miss the visit of Palazzo Morelli dating back to 1819, and boasting a splendid decorated portal, with little balconies, characterized by wrought railings, typical of the Baroque style buildings of the south of Puglia.
