This beautiful cathedral sits at the top of the hill, a short but fairly steep climb, gives rewarding views over the local countryside and access to the cathedral. Inside the use of local marble is superb. Worth a visit. NOTE: The cathedral closes around 12.00...More

Lovely hilltop setting, after wine tasting in Manduria at Consorzio Produttori Vini. A stroll round the town, followed by drinks and snacks in a lovely trattoria underneath the castle. Then the cathedral, which is newly cleaned and has a beautiful mosaic dome. Lovely day.
