Mottola is located in a strategic position to quickly reach the Itria Valley (Alberobello, Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Cisternino), the Caves of Castellana, Matera, Taranto, the beaches of Castellaneta Marina and Ginosa Marina.
WHEN TO GO TO MOTTOLA
With its almost 400 meters and its position always exposed to the winds, Mottola is a favorite destination in the summer for those who want to spend a rest and relax time in the hill, just a stone’s throw from the seaside resorts and the most crowded towns in the Itria Valley.
However, spring is the ideal period, the moment of flowering of the earth of the ravines, when it is possible to become completely intoxicated with scents and colours and get lost in the beauty of our land.
