Locorotondo - or 'u Curdunn' as the locals pronounce it - is beautifully situated on a hilltop 410 metres above sea level in the heart of the scenic Itria valley, with a wealth of tourist attractions within a short range
Locorotondo is in the middle of a triangle between three other places that are worth visiting: Fasano - known for its large natural park with exotic animals; Martina Franca with its beautiful baroque town, where in July / August there is a festival Il Festival della Valle d'Itria, and finally the city of Ostuni - known as the White City with a charming town centre and whitewashed buildings.
