This sun-bleached medieval town lies on three hills not far from the coast. From a distance, Ostuni is a jumble of blazingly white houses and churches spilling over a hilltop and overlooking the sea. Don’t be surprised if you hear a lot of English and German spoken in the cobbled streets. The White City, as it is called, has cast its spell on a large number of British and German nationals, who have bought second homes here. That doesn’t mean that the town has lost its natural native flavor. Religious festivals, fairs, and colorful traditional events are held as always with the same enthusiasm and fervor.
