Martina Franca (Puglia)

Martina Franca or only Martina is a municipality in the province of Taranto, Puglia. Since 1975, the town has hosted the annual summer opera festival, the Festival della Valle d'Itria. The town has a particularly beautiful old town surrounded by stone walls with prominent Baroque gates leading to piazzas and narrow, winding streets. Piazza Roma is the largest square in the old town, with a greenspace in the center of a largely triangular grass pattern, facing the 17th century Palazzo Ducale.
