The town of Monopoli lies in the Puglia region of Italy. It is known for its many churches, one of the most famous being the Chiesa di Santa Maria del Suffragio delta del Purgatori, which houses an archaeological crypt. The seaside town is a great day trip for those visiting Puglia, with a harbour and beach to explore and relax.
Puglia is a beautiful region of Italy, which forms the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot. Alberobello has been recognised by UNESCO as an example of spontaneous architecture in an urban setting. Its stunning streets are lined with trulli – white washed buildings with stone roofs. For an escape away from cities and to experience traditional architecture, Alberobello is not one to miss.
