  • Early Christian Church Byzantine twist. Mosaics of this quality don't expect them in a church that really wouldn't have seen if there had not been the recommendation of our guest. Even the Byzantine frescoes are very well preserved. Bella really not to be missed! Caution an oldie who opened the Church catturandoci in the gardens in front while we waited in the shade for visiting hours (17.00 hours) advertises itself, at least the responsible guy who drove us visit, as a guide to the Church and has tried to set an appointment for the next day to visit the caves. At least according to him asking about €20 per person attirandoti with sympathy! In fact his illustration of the place were difficult to understand and very very confusing multiple corrected the young doctor who has shown the places and who knows the places deeply because the object of his thesis.

  • Known almost by accident, by issuing a stamp of Poste italiane in autumn 2016, this church is a little gem. Rediscovery, almost by chance, at the beginning of the last century, thanks to a German archaeologist who studied the ancient roadway of the via Appia. Probably is the oldest monument of early Christian art throughout the Salento. Remarkable are the dome above the altar and the apse which have exquisite mosaics (5th-6th century AD). Notable Byzantine and medieval works of art. Excellent and comprehensive guided tour (thanks Christine!). A monument worth visiting
