Apulia and its
Apulia is a region in Southern Italy bordering the Adriatic Sea in the east, the Ionian Sea to
the southeast, and the Strait of Òtranto and Gulf of Taranto in the south. Its most southern
portion is known as Salento peninsula. The region extends as far north as Monte Gargano,
and was the scene of the last stages in the Second Punic War.
Situated at the south-eastern tip of the Italian peninsula, the central area of the region is
occupied by the Murge, a vast, semi-arid karst plateau. The only mountainous areas are the
Gargano promontory and the Monti Dauni. Apulia is a very dry region. Its few rivers are
torrential and are to be found on the Tavoliere delle Puglie, a tableland at the foot of the
Gargano promontory that is one of the largest and agriculturally most productive plains in
Apulia is one of the richest regions in Italy in terms of
archaeological findings. Apulia was an important area for
the ancient Romans, who conquered it during the course
of wars against the Samnites and against Pyrrhus. During
the Imperial age Apulia was a flourishing area for
production of grain and oil, becoming the most
important exporter to the Eastern provinces. After the
fall of Rome, Apulia was held successively by the Goths,
the Lombards and the Byzantines. Bari became the
capital and was ruled by a catepano (governor), hence
the name of Capitanata of the Barese neighbourhood.

architecture of the 11th–13th
centuries reflects Greek,
Byzantine, Norman, and
Pisan influences.
