  • Salento is beautiful, rich in history and unique places. This basilica is something to lose your breath, should appreciate it much more.

  • Beautiful musical expression of Bach in a setting of important relief, rich in frescoes of 1300 ... guests from around the world met the Prince of Belgium ... good experience, good organizers!

  • If you are in the vicinity of Gallipoli, vital passage in the city of Galatina to see the Basilica Saint Catherine and its majestic murals. Very well-preserved they are a remarkable and unique set. The façade is not without interest also

  • Located in the historic centre of Galatina, the Basilica of Saint Catherine of Alexandria represents, as far as I'm concerned, one of the most beautiful churches in the world. The Romanesque façade is striking for the decoration of the three bands of the portal and rose window, masterfully carved in a radial pattern. But the real wonder is just walked in the door. Enter you will find yourself immersed in a large part of the school of Giotto fresco cycle that embraces all the aisles of the basilica and stunned the visitor, which will return in mind surely the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. Recommend to visit the basilica, with the aid of a guide to appreciate it all with more awareness of what you are looking at. Don't overlook the adjacent cloister. A must for those coming in Salento.

  • It is a church not very big but very very very beautiful and evocative. Unfortunately it is not allowed to take pictures and videos, for this no I can testify with the images on her beauty. A visit is a must

  • It is certainly one of the beauties of Salento that should be admired, so cunningly and so much emotion.

  • IT'S LIKE ENTERING HEAVEN. I FELT DETACHED FROM ALL THE VULGARITY AND PETTINESS OF THIS WORLD. IN A DIVINE DIMENSION WHERE SURELY THE PAINTERS WERE ONLY INSTRUMENTS OF A GREAT ARTIST GOD, CREATOR OF THE SUBLIME. DEFINITELY DROVE THE HANDS OF THESE CHOSEN TO IMMORTALIZE HIS DIVINE MYSTICAL MESSAGE FOR THEN-IGNORANT AND ILLITERATE PEOPLE THROUGH INCOMPARABLE BIBLICAL IMAGES. PEOPLE FOOLISHLY SPEND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO GO TO GET THEIR BUTTS OUT OF A HUNDRED METERS OF SAND LOST IN SEAS FAR AWAY OVERLOOKING THE WONDERS WE HAVE SALAMI ... ... .... BAH............ DECADENCE VULGAR!

  • Gorgeous, as soon as you enter you can not do anything but speechless in front of a masterpiece like no other. Unfortunately without words does not mean that most visitors remain unfailingly become a place of worship in yet another fish market. A place to visit without hesitation if you are fortunate enough to go around.
