This church is set in the main square of Putignano. It is dedicated to St Peter and the locals believe that it was the apostle himself who preached in the town on one of his journeys to Rome. The town enjoyed Papal protection for many years and it was not under the authority of the local bishop, but directly under the pontiff. The church has an elegant Romanesque facade, with a portal dating from 1085, and a particularly beautiful rose window. But its real surprise is once you enter it, both on account of its size and its unusual split sanctuary. Above the high altar is another sanctuary connected by grand spiral stairs on either side. Above is the oratory of the Crucified, a lovely chapel that is home to the confraternity of the Crucified. The church has a fine ceiling and probably the most beautiful organ gallery in the whole of Puglia, elaborately carved and painted. This church is not to be missed.
