The beautiful Byzantine crypt, testimony of the Greek Rite in Carpignano frescoes dating back to that era. Worth a trip just to visit: is one of the most important monuments of the whole southern Italy rock bizantinità, certainly the most remarkable among all those in the Salento that attest to the presence in this land of the Eastern rite.
Veramente affascinante la cripta con bellissimi affreschi del periodo bizantino, alcuni meglio conservati, altri un po' meno, resi ancora più affascinanti dalle spiegazioni della volontaria che ci ha ... more »Truly fascinating the crypt with frescoes of the Byzantine period, some better preserved, others a little less, made even more fascinating by the explanations of the volunteer who has opened (call for appointment). Too bad that a gem like that must rely on the care of an Association of volunteers and that the Church, which owns the well, not if you care for him a lot! Should be enhanced and made better known. Thank goodness that someone takes care of it. Worth a detour to see it
Little bit hidden place in Carpignano but well worth a visit. You might need to find the keeper but entering the cool cripta will reward the hassle. more »
The crypt was a real bonus! Well kept, with original frescoes of the tenth and eleventh centuries. A guy volunteer made as a guide, explained all the frescoes and the use of the crypt until the present day. I highly recommend a visit
