Places of Puglia | an afternoon walk in the Historic centre of Locorotondo

February 25, 2017

After a magical bike ride from Masseria Faraone, we arrive in Locorotondo, or also known as "U Curdunn", originally a name that recalls the round shaped perimeter walls surrounding the historic centre 

 

When entering the historic centre of Locorotondo we get carried away by the white washed buildings decorated with beautiful plants and flowers, and their unique rooftops also known as "cummerse". Distinguished by their pitched roofs, formed with local stones also called "chiancarelle" 

 

Every summer, this small yet so unique village organizes The Locus Festival, also know for music and artistic quality that fuse with the popular and local events.
