  • We are in the heart of the old town ... sufficient to extract lanes from the stones around the housing slide the intimate history of this village. The Cathedral ... observed well, looks sad, the same square welcomes but then seems close to this monument. Missing quite a restauro outside. The staircase, the façade, the rosette require brightening up! The indifference of the residents, who do not realize the potential that emanate from the Cathedral, like the Castle, the Villa, the Town Hall and the other churches.

  • In the beautiful historic centre of this beautiful village lies the Bovine Cathedral, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta and that existed before the year 1000 and, perhaps, in the early Christian era. Some bishops, over the centuries XII-XIII, transformed the Romanesque building and integrated in the Cathedral Church of St Marco d Eca, patron of the town and is buried here. Subsequently the church underwent remodelling, as often happened in previous centuries, taking on a more Baroque aspect .... lost but largely with the earthquake of 1930 when the Church was restored to its current resolutely directed towards the Romanesque Pugliese. Outside the salient aspects can be seen in the façade (XII-XIII century) shaped pugliese "hut" and beautiful rose, while inside (which has three naves), you notice a beautiful ceiling and small dome that draws light from the canopy. Outstanding are the choir (but rebuilt in the 17th century), some elements of the old façade as the relief depicting "Daniel in the Lions ' den", the chapel of san Marco, with 18th-century works and the monument of blessed Antonio Lucci, ( Bishop of Bovino of the 18th century), beatified by Pope John Paul II. A church of absolute value, even more highlighted by the fact that since 1890 is a national monument and since 1970 has been elevated to a basilica minor.

  • Bovino is a small village to visit, within which there are little houses and churches that suggest a time long gone. The Basilica-Cathedral which is definitely worth visiting. You can see, from some locations, and the views of Daunia. Interesting restaurants and trattatorie with typical specialities of the area (the winery great place).
