THE FORMATION OF HE CANALE DI PIRRO VALLEY
The valley is a large karst depression, more precisely a Polje, connected with a fracture system and between the municipalities of Putignano, Castellana Grotte, Monopoli, Alberobello, Locorotondo and Fasano.
The slopes bordering the Channel Pyrrhic are different: the northern part called Selva di Fasano, is quite steep and straight line; the southern one, affected by the path of the aqueduct, is more sinuous and modelled more gently. The difference in height between the bottom of the channel and the plateaus above is between 75 and 100 meters. The entire Channel Pirro is on the contour line of 375 meters.
In two old parchments dated from the 11th century, the channel Pirro is called "Channel of the Pile", probably due to the presence of numerous tanks in the area, called just "cells" and used for the collection and storage of rainwater that flowed from the hillsides. Usually the tanks consist of circular mouths with stones. Today's name has changed from the past language's original name.

WHY BUY IN APULIA
Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and at the Italian Riviera. However, all this is rapidly changing because of massive investments in the infrastructure, such as the improved motorways, enlarged airports and the introduction of low cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet. The property prices are low in Apulia and low means value for money at bargain prices for the international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia and in our opinion investments will show good growth in value because of the increased demand. Also from north Italians as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assure, no tourist villages will ever be built because in Apulia the coastline is protected and people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties prices are bound to rise.
