The Adriatic Pearl

Polignano a Mare, known as the “Adriatic Pearl” is only 33km far from the city of Bari. The oldest nucleus of the city rises on a rocky spur overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Native city of the singer Domenico Modugno, who became famous thanks to his “Nel blu dipinto di blu”, Polignano fascinates with its historical center, rich of traces of different origins (Arabian, Byzantine, Spanish, Norman), like the remains of the four imposing defense towers that used to enclose the old village. Worth mentioning is the bridge of the Via Traiana, still accessible today, which crosses Lama Monachile. From “Arco della Porta”, once the only entrance to the city, it is possible to walk through this magical hamlet, which is enriched by the the XIII century Chiesa Matrice dedicated to the Assumption. Don’t miss to visit the Museum “Pino Pascali” Foundation, set up in the former municipal slaughterhouse and dedicated to the work of the great Apulian sculptor and artist. The Polignano coast, which stretches from Grotta Palazzese to Lama Monachile, is one of the most beautiful in Apulia, thanks to its hidden coves and to the lovely sandy inlets.
