World-Famous Olive Oil

Puglia is world-famous for its olive oil, which is known for its high quality flavor and traditional production process. Some of the olive trees are over 2,000 years old, making them the oldest in the world!

It's no surprise that olive oil is the star of many traditional Pugliese dishes, such as orecchiette con cime di rapa (ear-shaped pasta with turnip greens) and frittata di pasta (pasta frittata).

Trulli Magnificent

Alberobello is a small town located in Puglia's province of Bari. It's known for its unique trulli houses, which are traditional houses with conical roofs made of stone and mortar.

Originally built in the 14th century as temporary shelters for farmers and shepherds, these structures are now used as homes, shops, and restaurants, and they are a distinctive feature of the town's landscape.

Lace Making

Lace making has a long history in Puglia. While traditional handmade lace is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process, the resulting fabrics are prized for their ornate beauty and delicate intricacy.

Home to a number of artisanal workshops, the region is known for a type of lace called "tombolo," which is made using a technique that involves creating patterns with a single continuous thread.
