Strategically located in the Valley of the Trulli, between Alberobello, Martina Franca and Cisternino, Locorotondo owes its name to the perfect circularity of the shape of its historic center that contains beautiful and welcoming corners. From the top of its panoramic points, you will be enchanted by the spectacular territory characterized by long stretches of vineyards, olive groves, trulli and farmhouses scattered all around. Locorotondo is one of the most touristic centers of the Itria Valley (the Valley of the Trulli) and is counted among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Walking through the streets of the historic center of Locorotondo, there are vases of colorful flowers that look out from the balconies and balustrades. Another feature of this beautiful village are the so-called Cummerse, very steep roofs made with local stone. Among the things that stand out in the historic center, we highlight the Mother Church dedicated to San Giorgio, the small but beautiful Church of San Nicola, Palazzo Morelli and the Church of the Madonna della Greca which is the oldest church in Locorotondo.
Locorotondo inhabitants call Lungomare the road that connects the Villa (the panoramic garden) with the market square. It is a street full of restaurants and bars that becomes pedestrianized on summer evenings. But what makes the Lungomare one of the most popular places in the country is the breathtaking view of the Itria Valley. In Locorotondo there is no sea but walking down this street is a bit like walking on a real promenade where it is also one of the best places to watch the San Rocco fireworks competition.
