A fisher village, a town established over the sea and from the sea. This is Monopoli. A white square where the houses owe their colour to the lime and are fisher dwellings. Churches, squares, noble palaces from the 18th – 19th century. Here and there traces and remains from the Middle Ages tell the ancient story of the town. Golden and sandy beaches with crystal blue water. Its harbour enshrines the seafaring culture and survives thanks to the sea. But Monopoli also includes a countryside. Centuries-old olive trees, masserie and rocky churches.
More than once this town has won the “Blue Flag” award and the Lega Ambiente award. The northern part, together with the central one, has jagged cliffs with some small bays here and there. In the south and in the area named “Capitolo”, on the other hand, there are infinite sandy beaches. In some areas it is also possible to see the fascinating coastal dunes.
In conclusion, hospitality and beauty to discover on foot, by ship or by surfing. A natural scenery with pleasant bays and scarps which enable the ship mooring. Very emotional is the view of cliffs and caves created by the sea. The brave ones can also swim in waters where they can feel the “sciale”, cold flows close to the seaside. It is also possible to do water sports or relax in one of the several beach clubs equipped with umbrella, chairs, food courts, pedalo rental and discos.
