Train Station
“An exploration of the lovely Valle d’Itria (trulli country!) would not be complete without a visit to Martina Franca, the largest town in the area. This town is the highest in the Murgia, and was founded in the 10th century by refugees fleeing the Arab invasion of Taranto. It only started to flourish in the 14th century when Philip of Anjou granted tax exemptions (franchigie, hence Franca); the town became so wealthy that a castle and defensive walls complete with 24 solid bastions were built.”

Bar
“Delicious, traditional fresh dolce (cakes & sweets), coffees, teas, gelato & granita all served in a great atmosphere by super friendly staff. Packed with locals for colazione (breakfast), which consists simply of coffee & dolce or cornetto (croissants), and is often simply eaten at the bar! There are tables and chairs for those of us who prefer to take a seat, but indoors only. Slightly off the normal tourist path, so good to know!”
