Cathedral of Ostuni, Ostuni

Seated atop the highest hill in the city, and dedicated to St. Mary of the Assumption, Cathedral of Ostuni is a late Gothic-style cathedral, begun in 1435 and completed some 60 years later. Walk through the narrow cobbled streets of the whitewashed old town and up the hill to the imposing basilica. Explore the interior, which was rebuilt in the 18th century in the Latin-cross plan, and is composed of three naves, supported by two rows of supporting columns. The church contains several paintings depicting the life of Jesus, also from the 1700s.

  • Typical Puglian architecture. Go, see and admire. Then enjoy a slice of pizza with a beer, or similar. Happy travels..

Quite a busy town, but definitely worth taking in the beauty of it while stopping and admiring it for a few minutes.
