The Puglia region

Puglia is a wonderful area to consider. It offers at least one excellent archaeological museum, a host of cathedrals dating back to the 10th century, Greek and Roman ruins, a gleaming necklace of lively fishing villages, one of Europe's largest forests, a chain of medieval hill towns, and some of the very cleanest beaches and water in the Mediterranean.

Monopoli

What is there to see?

Cathedral - it is one of the most attractive examples of Baroque in the entire Apulian region. Its imposing monumental front is flanked on the left by an elegant bell tower that has markedly projecting cornices separating its floors. Notable is the Byzantine icon portraying the Madonna della Madia - legend tells that the sacred image was washed up from the sea on a stack of trunks, that were then used for the building of the trussed roof - very well-preserved and of fine workmanship, it dates from 1280.

Santa Maria Degli Amalfitani - a Romanesque building erected at the beginning of the twelfth century on a pre-existing rock settlement.

Abbey of Santo Stefano - a fortified complex built in 1086, the remains of an old church survive in the inner courtyard, still inside there are the visible remains of the Roman settlement of Turris Paola, one of the landing places for nearby Egnazia.

Castle - bounded on three sides by the sea and protected on the fourth by a moat that no longer exists, it was used as a prison until the beginning of the twentieth century, the castle has been recently restored and today houses the Municipal Archaeological Museum on its first floor.

Purgatorio Church - with images of skeletons on its doors. Inside you will find familiar Baroque interior but on the adjusting chapel you will find mummies of some local citizens. If the church is closed then you can watch some of the mummies through the street window.

Palazzo Palmieri - central square of the Centro Storico.

Madonna del Soccorso Church - old grotto with frescoes was dug out of a natural cavity in the rock.

The Region - It consists of 99 districts (“contrade”) characterized by the presence of ‘Masserie Fortificate’ of ancient Roman origin, Rupestrian Churches, neo-classic villas and houses. The outstanding landscape consists of almond and olive trees, apart from fruit trees of all sort and vegetables cultivation.
