The Puglia region
Puglia is an enchanting region, with something to offer all year round: natural beauty, history, ancient traditions, taste and spirituality.
Its geography is unique: a long coastline and level plains but also brief tracts of wild mountainside covered with thick forest. Fields of wheat and olive groves combine with orchards and rolling hills which contrast with dramatic cliffs and rocky slopes.
These same contrasts also apply to the history and culture.
Puglia is divided into Capitanata, Gargano, Terra di Bari, Murge, Valle d'Itria and Salento each a distinct area with a very different feel and each with their own history, culture and local cuisine.
Contrada San Gerardo
Monopoli is a charming town on the sea, famous, apart for its beaches and clean waters, for its baroque churches.
The town grew considerably in the Baroque period, with the twelfth-century cathedral given a new facade, while many noble houses were built, among them the lovely Palmieri mansion. The historic-artistic heritage is notable, starting with the lovely historic centre - its old houses facing onto quays, giving a clear impression of medieval landing stages - and the cathedral, one of the most interesting examples of Apulian Baroque.
A hard-working agricultural and fishing town, Monopoli has developed a strong touristic vocation in recent years: in fact, the jagged coastline has many enchanting bays.
What to see:
Madonna della Madia Cathedral, built in 1107 and completely rebuilt in the 18th century - one of the most attractive examples of Baroque in the entire Apulian region. Notable is the Byzantine icon portraying the Madonna della Madia - legend tells that the sacred image was washed up from the sea on a raft made of huge wooden logs that were then used for the building of the trussed roof which dates from 1280 and is very well preserved and of fine workmanship
Santa Maria degli Amalfitani near the port of Monopoli, is a Romanesque building erected at the beginning of the 12th century on a pre-existing rock settlement.
Abbey of Santo Stefano, a fortified complex built in 1086, is 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.
Charles V Castle bounded on three sides by the sea and protected on the fourth by a moat that no longer exists, was erected by the Aragonese during the first half of the 15th century. Used as a prison until the beginning of the 20th century, the castle has been recently restored and today houses the Municipal Archaeological Museum on its first floor.
Purgatorio Church inside you will find familiar Baroque interior but on the adjacent 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 is a central square of the Centro Storico. Madonna del Soccorso, is a old grotto with frescoes which was dug out of a natural cavity in the rock.
The countryside it consists of 99 districts characterized by the presence of "Masserie Fortificate" of ancient roman origin, Rupestrian Churches, neo-classic villas and houses.
