Orsara di Puglia


Orsara is a small hillside village, rising at an altitude of around 600 metres at the foot of Monte San Marco and surrounded by rich green woods that stretch and creep between hills and mountains. Rich in architectural and cultural treasures, the historic centre is a pearl to be admired while strolling around and observing its ancient and elegant palaces, narrow and winding alleys, tiny squares and ancient ovens that are still active today, one of which even dates back to the 16th century. And then there is the music. Strong indeed is the musical soul of the village, where every year Orsara Jazz takes place, an event that brings together big names in jazz music and is set in the magic of the old town.
