  • Built between the 9th and 10th centuries, first Church of the town, inside the Byzantine style frescoes dating from the 10th and 16th centuries.
    View original
  • Founded by monks between the ninth and tenth centuries, has a Greek cross and a dome supported by columns. The oldest frescoes are of excellent workmanship; are attributed to a local school inspired by Byzantine art. Often this attraction, unfortunately, is not open to the public. To visit you must ask the courtesy of the fathers of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.

  • Despite agreements with the custodians found the Church closed. Despite the efforts of the guide it is able to visit. Wasted trip.

  • Beautiful and old place
  • Byzantine gem, the Interior is covered with frescoes. A must for the traveller to see it from all sides, through to stairs and arches, because its shape in Greek cross is really nice activities.

  • Beautiful artistic and spiritual jewel. Entering the church you will be enchanted by the wonderful frescoes, Greek and Arabic inscriptions, and you feel a great spirituality.

Where to stay in Otranto

Most accommodations in Otranto lie on the outskirts of the historical center of town, located to the southeast of the main train station. Here, you'll find some upscale hotels and inns occupying old buildings, with decorated rooms and fantastic views of the surrounding architecture. Some more modestly priced options can certainly be found, just outside of the true historical center or along the coast to the north of town. These include guesthouses and the occasional family-friendly resort.
