Ostuni on map

The historic centre

The historic centre of Ostuni in Puglia, Italy

The historic centre, called by locals 'La terra', is formed by an intersection and superposition of houses that gives it its atmospheric and charming character. The apparent disorder of the houses creates a labyrinth of narrow streets and staircases, with beautiful palaces, portals and stunning views.

We will start our visit in piazza della Libertà, the most important piazza just outside the walls of the most ancient part of the town. Here is possible to see the main symbol of the piazza: the obelisco di Sant'Oronzo.
