Streets with houses with whitewashed walls of the typical Italian city of Locorotondo.

Strategically located in the Valle dei Trulli, between Alberobello, Martina Franca, and Cisternino, Locorotondo owes its name to the perfect circular shape of its historic center, which encompasses charming and welcoming corners. From its panoramic points, you will be enchanted by the spectacular landscape characterized by long stretches of vineyards, olive groves, trulli, and farmhouses scattered all around. Locorotondo is one of the most touristic centers in the Valle d’Itria (the Valley of Trulli) and is listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy.

Walking through the streets of Locorotondo’s historic center, there are pots of colorful flowers overlooking from balconies and balustrades. Another feature of this beautiful village is the so-called Cummerse, steeply pitched roofs made with local stone. Notable in the historic center are the Mother Church dedicated to San Giorgio, the small but beautiful Church of San Nicola, Palazzo Morelli, and the Church of Madonna della Greca, which is the oldest church in Locorotondo.

The locals call Lungomare the road that connects the Villa (the panoramic garden) with the market square. It is a street filled with restaurants and bars that becomes pedestrian-only on summer evenings. But what makes the Lungomare one of the most frequented places in the town is the breathtaking view of the Valle d’Itria. There is no sea in Locorotondo, but walking along this road is somewhat like strolling along a real promenade, where it is also one of the best places to watch the San Rocco fireworks competition.
