Sant'Agata di Puglia is known as the "loggia delle Puglie" for the beautiful view from the castle. The layout of the village is also particular and instantly recognisable, with the settlement unrolling along the hillside following its outline.
The historic centre is a uniquely well-kept nucleus, with characteristic alleys overlooked by stone houses and portals decorated with coats of arms, forming the Urban Park of Stone Works. A number of churches have been built over the centuries, which raise the historical and artistic value of the area: those of St Nicholas, St Agatha, St Andrew and St Michael Archangel are definitely worth a visit. In the surrounding area, rich vegetation intersperses some sites of archaeological interest.
Among the typical products, Dauno extra virgin olive oil PDO certainly excels, while authentic handicraft shops bring the centre to life. The village is bustling, with many events related to traditions and typical products, which attract many visitors because they are so charming, such as the Christmas torchlight procession in which Roman torches illuminate the town waiting for the nativity, like a real nativity scene.
