  • Small but rich Museum housed in a former Franciscan monastery restored magnificently! Is located in the town of Ugento, in Salento. In a beautiful old town built mainly in local stone, clear and bright with colors from cream to ochre. Many interesting exhibits, ranging from prehistory to the middle ages, with objects found primarily in graves dating back to the Messapian civilization. There is also a copy (well done) of the "Zeus of Ugento," small bronze masterpiece of Magna Greece, the original of which is kept in the Archaeological Museum of Taranto. A pleasant experience. Don't overlook a tiny club called Puccia P ", where the exit from the Museum we ate a puccia stuffed with every good things! Good and nutritious ...! (puccia is a wheat bread that are only in Salento, with very little crumb but soft and tasty, which is stuffed with meats or cheeses or vegetables or anything you want)

  • We went to visit on the advice of our bed and breakfast. Very interesting Museum and well maintained. Its definitely more of 3 euro entrance fee. On the ground floor, in addition to the tomb of the athlete, various "chapels" with wonderful frescoes; on the first floor well preserved archaeological finds interesting. Recommended!

  • It's a beautiful museum. We organized and the written explanation in English version is available.
  • The Museum is modern, fresh and well organized. IK pure pleasure to visit relics from different periods with full explanations and interesting of the long and dense history of these places. All this in the context of this former convent full of frescoes. Too bad that a Museum of such quality is little noticed by the tourist facilities of Salento. I wonder why. Salento is not only beautiful sea is also history and artistic value that deserves to be valued.

  • A small museum gem that deserves to be visited. As Ugento, a country where getting lost in the old town and admire the historic buildings. Shame about the Castle closed for restoration
