The tour starts from Baresana Gate, also known as Marina Gate, because it show the way of the sea. Walking beyond, we meet the Angevin tower, watchtower and defense, 24 meters high.
Recently it was restored and now we can see the moat and rampart, the first outpost of defense.
The tour continues in the town center to Valentine's Cathedral, one of the most important of Puglia region for its Romanesque style.
The Bitonto Cathedral is the one of the finest examples of an early Christian cathedral in Italy. This beautiful Romanesque cathedral dates from the 12 century and is a refreshing change from the 'over the top' Baroque churches which can be found in great numbers throughout Italy. The simple lines result in uncluttered space which is quite overwhelming. The crypt is not to be missed! An extensive architectural project has uncovered previous building which reveals the development of Christianity during the different eras since it's establishment in the 12 century.
The tour ends by visiting Sylos Calò Palace, built in the late Renaissance style.
Guided tour in the city famous for its Romanesque cathedral and its extra virgin olive oil.
