Fasano is a town and comune in the province of Brindisi, Apulia, southern Italy.It marks the border between the Altosalento and the province of Bari. It lies about 50km from all three of the provincial capitals in Apulia, namely Bari, Taranto and Brindisi. The name Fasano probably derives from the “Faso”, a large wild columbus dove which drank from the foggie, which was a type of swamp or pool in the open air formed from the water that flowed down from the surrounding hills. This area where the pool once was is now a communal garden.GeographyFasano is situated in an extended area with secular olive trees and its territory extends from hills to the sea with rich Mediterranean vegetation.Coming down from hills the town of Fasano occupies a dominant position in the valley which then leads down to the sea: coastal resorts include Savelletri with its beaches, the archaeological digs at Gnatia and a golf course and the quaint fishing town of Torre Canne. The coast is characterized by a peaceful atmosphere that prevails despite growing tourism.Around Fasano are Pezze di Greco, Montalbano, Speziale and Pozzo Faceto, centres of secular olive cultivation and a range of medieval fortified masserie or farmhouses aimed at agricultural tourism.Main sightsThe minaret of Fasano, an Islamic-style construction from 1918.Church of San Giovanni Battista (Chiesa Matrice), built in the 17th century.Torrione delle Fogge, the last remaining tower of the original eleven ones.Dolmen of MontalbanoArchaeological Park of GnatiaTempietto di Seppannibale, an early Christian churchthe Selva di Fasano, today a garden with villasoriginal trulli houseszoo safari Fasanolandia, the first of its kind in Europe
