In recent years Puglia successfully developed an important tourism industry thanks to its stunning coastline and historic cities like Otranto, Ostuni, Gallipoli and Lecce, known as "the Florence of the South." The region is also famous for its agricoltural products (oil and wine in particular) as well as for its vibrant fishing industry. Puglia has one of the fastest growing GDPs of southern Italy despite Sacra Corona Unita, a regional criminal organization (less powerful than those in Campania, Sicily and Calabria).
