The region of Puglia can be neatly split into three zones; the flat north plain and Gargano, the heel known as Salento, and the iconic central zones of Bari and Brindisi.
Eating badly in the zone of Fasano in the province of Brindisi is a crime according to a small brochure produced by the Città di Fasano. The city guarantees that the many restaurants and trattoria of Fasano offer a high level of quality based on an ancient tradition of excellent local products.
The Brindisi tourism authorities describe their territory as: 'a land kissed by the sun, a territory generous in nature, art and history, a beautiful coast, made to measure for holidaying, whether you prefer to laze on the beach or follow new paths where you can discover caves, castles, cathedrals, rock dwellings, trulli and old manor houses'.
The oldest and most venerated holy sanctuaries in Puglia can be found in Salento, right at the heel of Italy. The most venerated of all can be found at the most extreme point of the heel at 'finis terrae' or present day Leuca.
