A charming medieval fishing village overlooking the blue Adriatic Sea, it preserves the walls built by Emperor Trajan to defend the city and accessible through an elegant arch. In the old centre, the Palazzo del Marchese di Rende, the 16th century Palazzo Saraceno, seat of the Town Hall, the Church of San Domenico and the Church of the Spirito Santo with its 'trullo' domes stand out. The Romanesque Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta houses the Byzantine icon of the Madonna di Corsignano, patron saint celebrated for the entire month of August. The seafront promenade, with its characteristic small harbour offering enchanting views, is dotted with numerous places where you can immerse yourself in the flavours and aromas of the local food and wine tradition. In the coastal Murgia stands the dolmen of San Silvestro, a funerary construction dating back to the Bronze Age.
