Recently (1990), a new find was discovered, known as Paronella Ostunensis Laviano, and belongs to rudiste (sea fossils). The so called “old town” is Ostuni’s Citadel build on the top of a hill and is still fortified with ancient walls. Ostuni is reputed as an architectural jewel, and is commonly referred to as “the white town”. Ostuni shines like a beacon, a pearly white, rampant-ringed town across three hills, with some excellent restaurants, bars and is fully packed in the summer.
