  • The Church of San Domenico symbolizes pretty much the sentissima Holy week of Taranto, with the exit at midnight on Maundy Thursday of Madonna looking for Jesus. The Romanesque-Gothic church dates back to 1300, its roof is newer, having been rebuilt after its collapse occurred on Christmas eve of 1964. The current ceiling is made of simple trusses. Very nice, the Church is situated in the old town of Taranto and isola why surrounded entirely by the sea and connected by bridge to the South and from stone bridge to the North. Highly recommended a visit.

  • Beautiful church in the old town. Charming and wonderful Holy Thursday for the release of the statue of our Lady

  • The Romanesque-Gothic church, built in 1302, is located in the heart of the old town, and was built on the same site on which stood a place of pagan worship already in the archaic period, later replaced by a temple in Magna Graecia. Inside there are numerous traces of earlier buildings. The remains of the temple, on which rest the Church's foundations are visible through ten open hatches in the floor, with iron ladders. However, it is not visible in the old floor. In excavations conducted between 1992 and 1993 in the cloister of the convent were seen the columns of the Temple of classical times.
