  • We returned recently, especially as invoked by the metal structure that is attracting many tourists and have to actually recognize that, in addition to being able to riammirare with greater knowledge of the fact a simple and beautiful in itself, I could see how the new work, seemingly schematic and insignificant, is an excellent complement of the old basilica.

  • A little gem. An archaeological area estate real, well appreciated and especially the idea of "replicate" the old Romanesque church from the 12th century, now disappeared, with an iron structure which gives the feeling of watching a hologram! Truly spectacular. The basilica has been well restored, however when we were there, at the end of January, the crypt was not open. To see!

  • The Church was rebuilt in the 11th century by Leo, Archbishop of Siponto and Monte Sant'Angelo. In 1198, started new renovation, a monk named blessed under the Regency of Costanza d'altavilla, mother of Frederick II began the construction of the Church. Above the entrance door you can admire a bas-relief Madonna and child and two angels, under the angels there are the patrons of the Church, that is, Constance of Sicily and his son, Frederick II. The Interior of the Church is a Basilica is divided into three naves. The nave is covered by a one. The capitals of the pillars are decorated with ornaments and grotesque figures. The walls are decorated with Byzantine paintings with depictions of angels and saints. Inside one of the earliest frescoes of St. Francis, a beautiful San Michele on the horse and Saint George and the Dragon, all (as I said before) of Byzantine array. The entrance to the Church is free and you can sometimes find it open in the evening. I highly recommend you visit it at night (even days is spectacular) to breathe the air of almost a thousand years ago, for those like me who adore the Romanesque (what pugliese the detail) is a place worth visiting, just steps from one of the most mystical and rich in history in Italy!
