  • I visited too quickly the Palace because it was next closing time, I dwelt exclusively in the Hall where the capital of the column terminal Appia; I mean, is splendid with its depictions of Jupiter, Neptune, Pallas and Mars

  • Located in the heart of the city, we here hid from the rain. It turned out that inside the Museum of the history of the city, the truth is, we just watched part of it (on a visit to the Museum is not laid) on Roman history. Here quite a lot of fragments of Roman buildings, ceramics, sculpture. You can visit, if there's time, we liked the Museum.

  • The historic building is located in Via Duomo. It was built in the 16th century by the noble family of Brindisi Granafei, originally from Constantinople, which was the domain of several feuds in Terra d'Otranto. In the mid-1800s, the Granafei decide to move in Mesagne and, in 1862, sell the Palazzo to Nabi, a family of shopkeepers from Ortona. In 1930, the building was purchased by the city of Brindisi, which they will use as a courthouse until 1976; always in the ' 30 's, in side garden is a new building designed by the architect Telesforo Tachyons, reminiscent of the Renaissance style of the main Palace, where from 1932 hosts the Assize Court. The main façade is a late Renaissance style, but it has some features that anticipate the Baroque style, especially evident in the decorative elements that develop on the balustrades of balconies. The façade is divided into three orders by cornices, on which there are four aphorisms in Latin: "the wise woman builds her home; the foolish destroys it with his own hands "," what does it profit a fool their riches if it cannot buy wisdom? "," who answers before listening to it shows silly and reprehensible "and" love not sleep so as not to diminish. " The first floor is dedicated to exhibition halls, where the municipality promotes countless exhibitions of great importance; the complex of the former Court of Assizes also preserves the original capital of one of the Terminals of the Appian way. The building is beautiful, inside there is also a bar with Nice staff and prepared. To visit absolutely!
