It was well worth the drive from Locordondo to visit this town and this fantastic church at the top of the hill in town. The entire town is whitewashed and stands out for miles around. As you walk your way through the streets you can see how the town revolves around this great church. The inside is beautiful and richly... More

One Euro ticket gets you into this beautiful church. Surprisingly big with several side altars and a chapel. Stunning ceilings, paintings and frescos, yet unpretentious and simple. I encourage you to visit. Go up the road opposite the main square, it's not too far. Lots of touristy shops on the way up. There was a modern art exhibition to the... More

Amidst the winding and picturesque alleys of the 'white city' of Ostuni stands the very impressive Duomo. You don't expect to find such an outstanding cathedral in a little town, well maintained, preserved and cultivated. Worth a short climb in the alleys and one Euro you should pay to enter.

Ostuni's gem is La Citta' Bianca, the old town defended by its whitewashed walls on a hill overlooking the "sea" of olive groves bordering the unspoilt Adriatic coast. In order to explore its narrow steets you have to climb via Cattedrale starting on piazza Sant'Oronzo, the town's main square. As indicates its name it will lead you, after some efforts... More

A must see , very impresive construction, you can not imagine something that big on the top of a small town.

It's simply breathtaking that here in Italy, when you turn a corner not expecting much there is something stunning. And this was very much the case with the duomo di ostuni, completely unexpected, completely wonderful!

There are much more charming and interesting, old cities nearby. After visiting Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Cisternino one can judge better the atmosphere of Ostuni. For us Ostuni was boring and much less appealing than the other cities.

Ostuni is a stunner. Established in the 1stC AD, the old town is almost too good to be true: it is an ideal­ised fusion of cobbled alleys winding through white­washed houses, charming 15thC cathedral, and buzzing social scene, centered on Colonna di S. Oronzo, a fine 18thC obelisk, at the Piazza della Libertà.

Lovely walk uphill from the piazza on mostly-pedestrian Via Cathedrale to the Cathedral near the top. Beautiful rose window well worth the walk, and a nice little piazza in front.
