Postcards from Apulia

Apulia (Puglia in Italian) is Italy’s southeasternmost region, corresponding to the heel of the boot that the Italian peninsula resembles, and it’s a region of amazing beauty and traditions. For some unfathomable reason, I had only been there as a teenager, then only in its capital city, Bari, in a couple occasions when I was traveling for work and I didn’t get to see much of it.

So last spring I decided it was time to remedy this situation and spend a whole week in the region, with a detour to nearby Matera, which was the subject of a previous article. Here are some of the pictures taken during the trip, grouped by location: Trani, Castel del Monte, Alberobello, Lecce, Otranto, Polignano a Mare, and Bari. Enjoy!

All photos were taken with the Fujifilm X-T2, with various lenses, and with the Fujifilm X100S.
