The picturesque white city with its characteristic maze of whitewashed streets rich in history and animated by craft shops and typical restaurants stands out on a hill from which you can admire the wonderful view of the expanse of ancient olive trees and then the sea. Ostuni is located in the Valle d'Itria at 218 m above sea level. It is 42 km from Brindisi and 8 from the Adriatic coast which has been awarded the Blue Flag for many years.
The magic of Ostuni, the White City, is linked to the characteristic lime painting of the ancient village. At the center of the village stands
the fifteenth-century Cathedral in Romanesque-Gothic style on which stands a large rose window with 24 rays of rare beauty.
Just 5 minutes from the center of Ostuni, the sea is characterized by beaches, sandy coves, rocks, pebble beaches and dunes covered with Mediterranean scrub.
The coast of Ostuni stands out for the quality of the water, the coast, the services and for its countless beaches, equipped and not. From Torre San Leonardo to Lido Morelli, moreover, the Natural Park of the Coastal Dunes unfolds, a protected area, typical for its dunes that plunge directly into the sea and characterized by unspoiled nature, rocks from which you can dive into the beautiful blue sea and beaches and small coves where you can find intimate refreshment corners from the great summer heat.
Ostuni is located in a strategic position from which you can visit Puglia.
It is about 20 minutes from the beautiful Cisternino, 30 from Locorotondo, 40 minutes from Martina Franca, Brindisi, Monopoli, and 50 mins from Polignano and Lecce, 1 hour from Bari, Matera and Taranto.
Obviously we must not forget the many wonderful beaches of both the Adriatic and Ionian sides, easily reachable from Borgo Silentio. Grottaglie, known for its ceramics and art workshops, is about 30 minutes from Borgo Silentio.
