  • Unique in the world, discovered by chance in a historic undervalued and with little indication, Friars very funny and helpful a real find

  • Beautiful gothic church of the Franciscan friars, is an unusual presence in Apulia for the strong imprint of Umbria, very close to the basilica of Saint Francis: a splendid cycle of frescoes of the Giotto school covers times and walls. Shame we could not admire the façade, under restoration. You should also visit the adjacent kiosk, full of interesting frescoes.

  • It is an absolute disgrace that a monument of this importance remains closed-for lunch-3 and a half hours! Evidently the friars who run it are "safe" in terms of skill, even if only commercial: in the few months of the year in which there is sure influx of tourists, their close for so long. Like us, at least another 20 people who were, in awe, outside. Clearly at this point businesses will suffer too, because we will go elsewhere for lunch and sightseeing. Perhaps someone should step in and make us reflect the friars.

  • Sensational ... the treasures we have them only in Italy. Salento is the forge of the culture of the Apulian Barocco ... but so many other artistic styles and many more surprises like the Basilica di Santa Caterina open their hearts and minds toward unexpected artistic horizons ... to visit and come back often because every detail may raise every time a surprise ... to raise awareness to those who want to know the real art ... in fact little publicized ...

  • The basilica of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, one of the most outstanding monuments of Romanesque and Gothic art in Puglia Puglia, is a building in the historic centre of Galatina. You can't not visit if you are in Salento: the Basilica you can feel the history and, thanks to thorough descriptions of guides, it is brought back in time. The frescos, everywhere, are the wonder that will leave you speechless. There is the cloister and the little Museum next to the Basilica.
