  • The Church of Santa Maria della Purità, who also serves as the seat of the confraternity, was built in the year 1664. The façade is bounded laterally by two pilasters and ending with a slightly projecting cornice of carparo on which finds support a pediment with two pinnacles, the façade is also characterized by three beautiful tiled panels depicting the Madonna della Purità, St Joseph and St Francis of Assisi. The Interior is rich in magnificent stucco and has a marble altar on which is placed the canvas performed by Luca Giordano depicting the Madonna della Purità between St. Joseph and St. Francis of Assisi. Many are still the canvases dating from the 18th century covering the walls of the nave, many of them created by artist murese Liborio Riccio

  • Heading off down to the riviera Cristoforo Colombo we run into a small church from the 17th century. with a simple façade, bianca, with maiolitico and triptych two Windows and inside the surprise: a wealth of decorations, XVIII century paintings depicting scenes from the Bible, a beautiful altar in polychrome marble and above it, a true masterpiece, a valuable painting of the Virgin and child with St Joseph and St Francis, by Luca Giordano. Also notable is the maiolitico floor decorated with arabesques and floral motifs. Certainly worth visiting

Where to stay in Gallipoli

To use Gallipoli as a base to see the rest of Puglia, consider staying in or near the city's old town, noted for its shops, restaurants, and museums. Most hotels in this area are quite large and modern, so if you want something a little more traditional and low-key, think about booking your room at a private villa or B&B near the seafront. They offer stylish rooms and sunny terraces, with access to private swimming pools and nearby beaches.
