  • It's really a hidden gem in the city, beautiful to visit, a complex maintained fine although still has to be fate then if you find yourself around is worth a visit, making sure before it's opened!

  • A monastic complex surprising. The Church is rich in frescoes and is very interesting as it may have retained in the middle of the refinery.

  • The medieval complex of Santa Maria della Giustizia is located on SS. 106, on the right, shortly before arriving at Taranto, on the side opposite the AGIP refinery input. Negative elements are the lack of signage, the lack of public transportation, the difficulty of parking (there is a tiny space at the side of the highway) and the bad smell coming from industrial plants; but as soon as you enter the Church, Gothic style, you enter into another dimension; the monumental complex is made up of the Church from the beginning of the 14th century in Gothic style, and the convent. The complex is completely bare, devoid of furnishings, but retains a certain fascination for history tells us. To report the two elegant church access portals (one on the front and the other on the left side), the sixteenth-century chapel with umbrella, "Christ with braces", fresco by an unknown author in the refectory of the monastery. Visits, tours, are maintained by the Archeoclub of Taranto (see Facebook page). The site, little known, is considered among the most important of Taranto and then suggest you check them out.
