Bisceglie

Overview

Bisceglie is a city overlooking the sea. Lying on the Adriatic, it has a historical and cultural heritage that has always been linked to the sea, its trade, the dangers it entailed as a border open to invasions, but also its undeniable charm. The oldest centre is guarded by the imposing Aragonese walls and welcomes with its narrow streets and paved alleys, but the heart of the city is on the sea, more precisely on the port. In fact, it is from this place that Bisceglie was born and is still today a centre in great ferment thanks to the impressive fishing activity that involves it. It is a natural inlet protected to the north by a dyke, the port, a strategic and identifying point of the city, a place to discover, to observe and to listen to, a treasure chest that holds local history and passes on its gestures, customs and traditions.
