Martina Franca, Italy

Martina Franca or MF is a town not far from Taranto and somewhere I thought about living until I decided to stay in Grottaglie. I think this is the second largest town in the area after Taranto.
 Like most towns in Southern Italy, it comes alive at night, everyone is walking around enjoying food, shipping and life. MF main church is beautiful, being as large as it is,it's difficult to take a photo with all the other buildings around it.
People in transit.
 Another recommended wine.  Primitivo is a grape native to Puglia, it's the best grape, but you can also find it from California under the 'code name' Zinfandel.
 People walking around, daily.  1pm, this plaza is empty and every store front is closed but a few hours later it's very busy.
Later in the evening things quiet down, everyone heads home.
