  • This is a small chaple unimposing from the outside. It's all about the frescos on the walls of such age and colour depicting many topics including the patron saint of Dentistry. Dont miss it.  more »
  • Secluded in the middle of the streets of Otranto it suddenly appears almost modest and then unveils a masterpiece full of Byzantine frescoes.

  • You can't help but go and see this church once you arrive in Otranto! In addition to being the first church built is definitely a jewel of Byzantine art of rare beauty. There are frescoes everywhere and although over the centuries different styles have overlapped it is all a wonderful sight not to be missed. Albertop, ALA.

  • Byzantine church with unique fresco paintings.
  • Small church of Byzantine style, a true jewel. Pity not being able to visit the interior, because it closed. No indication of the opening time.

  • A Byzantine gem in the heart of Otranto. A small church with frescoes dating back to different periods of history. A mix of art and history, unmissable if you're staying in Otranto. The path to follow is well sign posted in town so the Church is easily accessible will not disappoint when it is open you will find a caretaker available that you can get a brief explanation of art and history. I highly recommend visiting

  • The oldest church in Otranto. Of Byzantine origin, of a time when peoples of different faiths were able to live together in peace. On the arch above the altar is even depicted an inscription in Arabic which is presumably an invocation to Allah.
