  • The Church of Santa Maria del Casale is a Romanesque-Gothic building situated 2 kilometers north of Brindisi, towards the airport. The façade is in bands of ornamental designs of two-color stones. On the portal an original ProStyle, open front with an arched facade architectural scheme, trilobe repeats; above opens a large arched window. Internally it is a Latin cross with a nave roof trusses and vaulted ceiling in the apse. Inside there is a marble column surmounted by a cross believed to be that of Hosanna (9th century). The walls are largely covered with Byzantine style frescoes but with some Gothic line. On the entrance wall, the last judgment, great fresco distributed into four compartments, signed by Rinaldo da Taranto, referring to the first decades of the 14th century. Admire the adjacent cloister. Shame about the lack of parking and the lack of tourist development of the area as difficult to find and reach for lack of adequate signage. But it's a short stop to admire it. Consecrated Church and working in Christian celebrations. To see.

  • It may seem strange but the extension and modernisation of the contiguous airport resulting in the road marred renovation and not favored this ancient structure. In the past you had to go through before getting to the Airport (and jumped in the eyes), now we have to go there specifically. On reaching it by car and Park are another problem: they require commitment! Logistical considerations aside, this church is a little gem, both from outside and inside. Lovers of history will find interesting references (we are in the era of Angevin triumph on Swabian, and it shows) but relevant is the fact that in the adjacent convent was one of the few, and the most important in the southern Italy, trials against the Knights Templar. If I am not mistaken the trial are still preserved in the biblioteca Episcopal "Dairo".

  • Santa Maria del Casale is one of the most picturesque churches. Recommended visit, also because it is in the House, one of the most beautiful residential areas of the city.
