In the heart of the Apulian Romanesque
Within a radius of 40 km from the Masseria we find some of the most fascinating places in the area.
Pilapalucci is at the entrance to the Alta Murgia National Park, with its spectacular geological sites such as the Pulo di Altamura and the Pulicchio di Toritto.
A few kilometers away is Altamura, famous for its DOP bread, where there is the only Cathedral built by Frederick II of Swabia.
Immediately after, in Basilicata, we find the well-known city of Matera, where you can visit the Sassi, a UNESCO heritage site, and the interesting Crypt of Original Sin with its Byzantine frescoes.
Moreover in the Alta Murgia National Park we find the imposing and mysterious Castel del Monte, another excellent Frederick monument.
On the Adriatic coast, the beautiful cities of Trani and Barletta as well as the charming seaside towns of Bisceglie, where there is the ancient Dolmen, and Giovinazzo with its characteristic fishing port and beautiful rocky beaches, should be noted.
For lovers of history and the arts, we recommend Bitonto, which offers the National Gallery of Puglia in its beautiful historic center and the famous Jatta archaeological museum in Ruvo di Puglia.
Bari, the capital, deserves a full day visit, in particular to admire the Apulian Romanesque style of the Basilica of San Nicola and the Cathedral of San Sabino.
A note of merit goes to Polignano a Mare, which has become the location of important films; in Monopoli, with its magnificent sandy beaches; in Alberobello, universally known for its trulli.
