This Baroque-style column dedicated to the patron saint of the town dominates Piazza della Libertà. The saint is depicted as blessing his people and saving them from the plague. It dates from the late 1700’s.

Legend says that to combat the curse of the plague, in addition to scented pills and special medicines, white lime was used to paint the houses; and that gave rise to the name "White City" for Ostuni and others in the area.

This spire is located in the middle of the main square, Piazza della Liberta. It was made from limestone in the mid-700s and it is more than 20 metres high. It’s dedicated to Saint Orontius
who saved the population from the plague in 1656. He’s the patron saint of Ostuni.

This Plazza is a lovely place to sit in one of the cafes or restaurants to just relax and watch the world go by. Many places to visit in this area.

In the middle of the square there's this beautiful baroque spire...the way it stands out from the White of the city is beautiful.

An impressive statue in the centre of the piazza, bordered by a pletora of bars and restaurants. Depicting the holy Oronzo, patron of Ostuni. What a tribute!

Nice statue in the middle of the town. Nice and just worth a photo given the fact that traffic is all around. Spend a moment to have a better look

The ending of a plague in Puglia in 1656 as also an outbreak of cholera in 1851 is attributed to Saint Oronzo. As well as being the patron saint of Ostuni - we hold a three-day festival from the 25 August to 27 August in his honour - Oronzo is also the patron saint of Lecce.

His column is best viewed from Pausa Cafè on the piazza below, one of our preferred post dinner stopping off points in Ostuni, with a cocktail in hand on a balmy summer evening.

Worth a visit. Impressively tall and imposing in the lovely main square filled with history. From the base, there's a lovely view of the cathedral at the tip of this hill town.

The patron saint for Ostuni (and Lecce) welcomes you as you walk into the main square and it’s a wonderful and majestic welcome at that.

It’s an impressive statue that really captures your attention. Be sure to check him out from every angle because they’re all good.

nice area but far from the best you will see. Made up mainly of holiday traps for tourists who will pay too much for coffee
