  • 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
