  • Very beautiful church next to archaologischer Park. Well preserved and with a characteristic the square plan. We had some problems in identifying the exact times of operation since the website was not updated.

  • It is little known and publicized a beautiful installation of Tan, who plays 2D 3D the archaeological remains of an early Christian basilica. The effect is spectacular at sunset and with artificial lights. The technique of reproduction is also special: simple network of galvanized steel (type fences). Not to be missed for a tourist who is in Apulia.

  • Beautiful Romanesque Greek cross basilica. Interesting mosaics, enhanced by the addition of the presence of a work of contemporary art that goes to recreate the hypothetical lifted of early Christian basilica. One of the few currently visible remains of ancient Siponto.

  • Are fabulous. The basilica, renovated and restored it back to beautiful and has been valued. The work of Tan, genial, meant to bring to light the ancient Church, making it usable in a tangible way the archaeological remains, which are often in a State of disrepair, tell us little or nothing about their architettettura and their beauty. It's a smart way to enhance our historical and archaeological heritage, which certainly could draw large numbers of visitors, in all places we own, as demonstrated by the visits of the site in question. And finally, a way to show that you can get value for public money. It would be appropriate to advertise the site and to charge a fair admission price.

  • Wonderful is the Church with the painting of the Madonna that the modern structure to recreate really atmospheric. Beware closes at 19 and not 20 as on the site and the crypt is closed.

  • The small basilica was already, in itself, a place to visit; now it's a place not to be missed, with the arrangement of the Archaeological Park and the realization of a fantastic twisted wire structure, created by the artist Tremolos, which reconstructs the Christian basilica, of which remain only a few ruins and part of the mosaic floor. Not to be missed in the evening, as written by someone, but also during the day, with the Sun seems to add volume and shape to the structure.
