Martina Franca (15 Km), Locorotondo (9 Km) and Cisternino (18 Km) face onto this enchanted valley.
Matera (45 Km) is known throughout the world for the “Sassi”, a built-up area of dwellings made from caves carved into the tufaceous rock. Numerous studies show the presence of man there since prehistoric times.

Angelo and that of St. Giovanni Rotondo, where the remains of Padre Pio lie, are the main tourist cultural attractions of this area.
