Windows and doors in Puglia
Just got back from a week-long break in Puglia. It was a wonderful holiday, where I stuffed myself silly with delicious, inspiring food and met some absolutely lovely people. Puglia is located in Italy's heel, and isn't the most popular of tourist destinations. And I like it that way. The towns and villages still retain their rustic charm, buildings are crumbling, roads bumpy and the people genuine and warm. This feels like an authentic Italy, untainted by hordes of tourists and untouched by commercialism.
I particularly loved looking at the windows and doorways while walking around the area. Pictures were taken around Galatina, Lecce and Gallipoli.
