When you arrive in Andria you will be attracted an amazing view: vast expanses of olives trees between the Adriatic Sea and the Murgia Hills.
This sea of olive trees is cultivated as old traditions. The olive oil has a lovely taste and a delicious fragrance because of calcareous and fresh soil. This place is also full of wonders: vineyards, almond trees, fig trees.
And then there is the Murgia, a jewel case made of stone that preserves unique treasures.
Take a trip on the windy Murgia upland to experience something unforgettable for your mind and spirit. You will admire several shades of green, yellow and brown along with thymus, fennel, oregano, rosemary, lentisk and lavender.
This is the land of the dry stones that cover miles of ground, votive aedicules and farms where ricotta, goat's milk cheese, and the sublime "burrata" are produced according to old traditions.
This is an ancient world, where spaces widen into endless directions and the silence is deep.
In this suggestive world you will feel the singular sensation of a "once upon a time land" that is still uncontaminated and will be preserved by the Alta Murgia National Park.
