Locorotondo

Overview

As the word itself says, Locorotondo has a round shape. The quiet hamlet perched on a rise is made up of small white brick houses with pointed, sloping roofs, the typical cummerse, evoking the appearance of a northern European village. Arranged in a circular fashion around the centre, the small houses are surrounded by the famous balcony, the so-called \'promenade\', whose name should not be misleading because it is in the middle of the hills. Strolling through the alleyways of this village certified Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club is a bucolic experience, made up of continuous glimpses to be photographed: wrought-iron balconies in bloom, cacti arranged at the corners, painted stairs and doors, and laundry hung out in the sun. From Via Nerdelli, for example, the view over the valley and the village is incredible, and if it is sunset time when the sun sets the landscape ablaze, it is unforgettable. Via Nardelli is also the starting point for the Scalinata dei Templari (Templars\' Staircase), which passes through the vineyards and skirts the escarpments around the village. Among the small houses in the centre are the baroque Palazzo Morelli, the Mother Church of St George, the town\'s main church with its neoclassical façade, and the 15th-century Church of St Maria la Greca, which, in contrast to its essentiality, has an intricate modern rose window on its façade.

Locorotondo is also home to the oldest trulli in the region, dating back to 1509, but unfortunately it cannot be visited and is only visible from afar.
