About Martina Franca
Martina Franca is a baroque city which dates back to the Xth century when the inhabitants of Taranto and the refugees from the neighbouring countries sought safe on the hills-of the table-land to escape the cruelty of the Saracens and sheltered on the so-called "Monte di San Martino", where they built the first huts and a Chapel dedicated to the Saint. It is set on the top of a hill among swift and fertile hills which bound the Valley of Itria, the fabulous valley of the "trulli". Is the highest place in the table-land of the Murge, 431 meters above sea level. Nowadays is a popular summer destination for tourists and holiday-makers thanks to its fresh and salubrious air, to the extraordinary beauty of its landscape, the artistic interest of the buildings as well as the kind hospitality disposed by its inhabitants . To visitors the white hilly town shows a double appearance: the old town where the peasants have been living for centuries secluded, as to defend their own "civilization" and the new town with modern services and facilities. The Palaces and Churches of Martina Franca stand out among the white lime houses and the narrow streets, often surmounted by small arches and wonderful wrought iron windowsills decorated with flowers.
