Carovigno

The white cobbled streets and historic buildings of Carovigno nestle on a hill, below the majestic Norman castle at its summit. This traditional town is a maze of old streets and alleyways with rustic, picture-postcard scenes around every corner. Carovigno has a rich and varied history, having been ruled by many different people over the years including Romans, Bourbons and Byzantines, all of whom have left their mark on the town. The Adriatic coast is just a short drive from Carovigno, making it the perfect base from which to explore the many beautiful coves and beaches nearby.

Carovigno - Food & Dining

Local cuisine is rich in flavour but often simply made, as many of the recipes in Puglia originate from times of hardship where ingredients were scarce. Typical dishes include mashed fave beans served with wild chicory.

Carovigno - Excursions and Places of interest

Natural areas of beauty

Torre Guaceto is a protected Marine reserve just 15 minutes drive from Carovigno and Ostuni. Here the landscape is a beautiful combination of Mediterranean olive groves, rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and wetlands rich in wildlife. No motorised water sports are allowed within the protected area but there are plenty of other activities to enjoy, including hiking trails, cycle routes, snorkelling and scuba diving. If you are really lucky you might even catch a glimpse of some Loggerhead turtles or dolphins!

Attraction parks

The Zoo Safari near Fasano is a real treat for all the family! Open from March to September, the zoo is home to over 50 species of animal and there are fantastic dolphin and penguin shows to catch!

Castles

Castello Dentice di Frasso is an impressive castle right in the centre of Carovigno. Once protected by the towering city walls, the castle dates right back to the 12th century and is fine example of local architecture. Climb its tower, enjoy the beautiful courtyard and stop for a coffee in the small café.

Other Places of interest

Visit the famous caves of Castellana and be "wow-ed" by the amazing caverns, fossils stalactites and stalagmites that have been around for hundreds of years
