Pulsano Abbey stands on the spur of Italy’s heel, overlooking the Gulf of Manfredonia

There has been an abbey at this location on the Gargano promontory since the 6th century, but the original was destroyed by Islamic invaders and the 12th-century rebuild – which had grown to become one of the most powerful monasteries in Italy – was badly damaged by the earthquake of 1646. The complex was finally restored in the 1990s and visitors today can enjoy not only the abbey itself but also the splendid views the site affords of the surrounding Parco Nazionale del Gargano and, most notably, the Golfo di Manfredonia below.

About Italia!

This month we embark on our travels to Verona, the beautiful Veneto city immortalised by Shakespeare in his tale of star-crossed lovers. Whether the story of Juliet’s balcony is fact or fiction matters little, as we travel deeper to the city’s heart and its noble Roman heritage. Traditions of another kind are on our mind in Puglia; this time, the culinary variety. It’s a captivating land with its roots firmly in the soil, as you’ll discover. The restful public gardens of Florence are in the spotlight too, while this month’s Fast Culture tells a tale of mistaken identity or Renaissance ‘spin’ that’s not to be missed.
