Monopoli (Puglia)

Monopoli is a town in the province of Bari and region Apulia. It is important mostly as an agricultural, industrial and tourist centre.

The territory outside the walled city counts 99 hamlets (frazioni) and localities named contrade. Some of them, which merged with the urbanized area of the town, were suppressed and became outer wards. The others are mostly rural localities, mainly composed by some scattered farmhouses.

Most important sights of the town are: the Castle of Charles V, located on a promontory which was originally separated from the medieval city, the Coastal castle of St. Stephen, the Monopoli Cathedral and Palazzo Palmieri.

@Tabbi asks:

Hello, new user and new home owner here. I would be grateful if anyone has any practical tips on dealing with damp! Photos attached.  I'd like to deal with it as naturally as possible and then finish with a final lime render.

@Sara Lee asks:

hi everyone 

I am about to purchase a villa in Puglia in January.

We have reliably been informed that we only need to pay 2% sales tax as opposed to 9% if we register it as a Casa prima within 18 months.
