    Another wonderful example of Apulian Romanesque style, coming from the harshness of the Romanesque, winking to the Baroque. Wonderful façade. Its particularity is that it shut and enclosed by a railing and a metal gate. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the inside.

    At the beginning there was only one cave Church, just a few meters from the port of Monopoli. According to local history, in 1059 a group of sailors from Amalfi, survived a shipwreck, paused to pray to our Lady in this crypt and, in gratitude, they entitled to Santa Maria. In the first half of the 12th century, some families of Amalfi wanted to dedicate a new church to Saint Mary and they built the crypt a Basilica-type church with three naves which ended with apses. The right nave we descend into the crypt, one of the oldest in Monopoli, consisting of a large cave that form a nave with a double apse. The original frescoes have been lost, if you exclude a fragment that represents St. Nicholas; those that are currently visible on the vault, depicting the Madonna with child and angels, go back to the end of ' 600, as well as the columns with capitals. Restoration started in 1932, they eliminated the Church's baroque indoor contamination, returning the building to the original Romanesque structure. Exceeded, in fact, the wonder of seeing the inside of the Church almost bare, in fact it is rewarding to admire the harmonious simplicity and essentiality of architectural lines. The Church is not always open, especially in the morning.
