In the heart of the Apulian Romanesque
Within a radius of 40 km from the Masseria you can find some of the most fascinating places of the territory.
Pilapalucci is located at the entrance of 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 PDO bread, where there is the only Cathedral built by Frederick II of Swabia.
Right after, in Basilicata, you can find the well-known city of Matera, where you can visit the Sassi, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the interesting Crypt of the Original Sin with its Byzantine frescoes.
Moreover, in the Alta Murgia National Park you can visit the imposing and mysterious Castel del Monte, another excellent monument by Frederick II.
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 history and arts lovers, we recommend Bitonto, which offers the Puglia’s National Gallery, its beautiful city center and the famous Jatta archaeological museum in Ruvo di Puglia.
Bari, the main town, 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, Monopoli, with its magnificent sandy beaches, and Alberobello, universally known for its trulli.
