Castellana Grotte

Puglia (A-Pluvia) roughly translates as “A Land without Rain.” The name comes from the fact that the land itself lives over a vast configuration of caves that allows the water to escape directly at sea level rather than into the air. Castellana Grotte’s caves are Italy’s most famous. The caves of Puglia are also one of the reasons Alberobello’s houses without mortar (Trulli) stand proud to this day because the caves absorbe the mechanic waves and shakes of any earthquake to the land.
