In the car again, travelling through a valley of many Trullo dwellings, heading for the targe town of Martina Franca, the center of which is a mostly pedestrianised area of narrow streets and gothic architecture.
We parked the car in a huge free car park and walked about 200 metres to one of the main gates to the old town and the gate of Saint Antonio.From there we walked around the Piazza Roma and down to the Basilica di San Martino with it's impressive stone fascia.We then followed the narrow winding streets to a view point over the valley we had driven through to get there, with the picturesque Trullo dotted around the landscape.

The remainder of the trip around the old town was interspersed with Old buildings and strange sights, including an effigy of an old lady hanging from street decorations, gently swaying in the breeze, with a grater, an orange, a string of nuts and other unidentifiable culinary delights.
