Ostuni too, probably around IV Century B.C., surrounded itself with a powerful outward circle of walls, that it's possible to follow now there where yardens end and the tract of olive trees begins. We don't know the structure of the bild-up area that maybe was dividedinside into other smaller circles of wall, but the archeologic search proves by documents the existence of an ancient centre that occupied terraces and the slopes of hill on wicht the medieval stronghold then developed.

From the reliefs of the southern Murgia Ostuni, lime and light white woman, one shows oneself to the Adriatic, offering to the visitor in all its luminous beauty. Mail to the margins of Goes them of Itria,conserve the schiva ritrosia of the villages falling back in this evocative earth border with to the gaiezza and own vivacità of the
countries fates on the sea from which it tos be distant hardly six kilometers.

A landscape from the thousand suggestions, characterized from the presence of the ulivi, abundantly scattered in the flat ones and on the full of rocks cliffs, one rich city of historical stratifications, that in time succession it has been Messapica, Roman;

it has known the dominion of the Longobardi, of Bisanzio, of the Normanni, of the Svevi, of the Angioini, of the Aragoneses, the tyranny of the Spanish family of the Zevallos, the Borbonico government, the libertaria tension of the Renaissance.

The ancient village, perched on the higher hill, dipped in the candid lime tap, charms and intrigues with multiple callbacks. Through of it the traces of the times and the civil and religious history of people can be chased and be picked that have lived in the places or simply to disperse in the inestricabile labyrinth of the white women narrow lanes, to dip itself, it forgets about the weight of the history, in that where dreaming atmosphere the voices of a simple and cordial humanity.

Closed and fortified in cerchia the building, the old nucleus slarga here and here in airy terraces; nearly balconies in the space in order to discover a charming panorama: the hill comes down in escape of gardens and silver olive groves towards the bluest smooth sea navy of Ostuni, twenty kilometers of coast multishapes, broadside from the typical spot Mediterranean and equipped of takeovers and diversified tourist equipments.

Yoing by masserie fulfils the will of past, of search of the lost time,it means to dive in to the tranquillity of country to discover valid traces of a rich repertoire of usages and customs, the rudimental farm tools in use in the past and sometime run into strange gadgets, real invenctions, fruit of the clever creativity of the murgian farmer. 

Rosen in the middle of the humble life of fields, masserie also  bring the vestiges of luxuries and distant glories, many of them, in fact, werw apanage of knights of a determined arder (the commenda) or of men of court and then undisputeddominion of rich uassals, counts, marquesses, barons who made the masserie their headquarters.
