Most of Puglia is flat plain or small, flat-topped hills like you'll find in the murge Salentino, found from the area just northeast of Gallipoli to the point at the end of the peninsula.
The largest portion of Puglia's protected area is found in the center of the Gargano Penninsula, most of which is made up of the Parco Nationale del Gargano as well as the Foresta Umbra, Italy's newest national park. Protected areas like these form 6.7% of Puglia's total land mass of 19,362 square kilometers.
Puglia's population is just under 4 million people. Puglia's administrative center is Bari, which has a very interesting central core consisting of narrow, winding streets and alleyways.
