Another 17th century baroque church with the distinction of having more canvases of religious art than others in Puglia. On the high point of the old village but crowded with surrounding building so not possible to get a perspective of its size from the outside

This is a beautiful baroque cathedral. The interior is reminiscent of the over-the-top baroque style of the churches in Lecce.

Although ornate, this cathedral has mostly huge paintings that must have darkened with age. There is also a reliquary with an almost complete skeleton (notice the teeth) which we assumed was the named saint.

Like most others in Italy mornings are the most reliable times to visit. Evening opening tends to be not so regular. But normally open 7:30 to 13:00 then again later to 9:30 ish. But things can change with special ‘days’.
