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.

Beautiful town to visit with so many little cobbled streets, The Cathedral was absolutely amazing but was a bit disappointed that we could not look inside. Some lovely little individual shops and lots of places to eat, The views from the top towards the sea were stunning.
