Polignano a Mare has its roots in the calcareous stone of a very long and huge karst coast, full of caves. The perfect place for a trip in Puglia’s culture, history and traditions.
The sweet Mediterranean climate, the sea and its natural beauty request an holyday here in every season of the year.
In the summertime the lively town welcome its hosts with a kaleidoscope of lights, sounds and scents; in springtime and autumn you can find the right calm so to be relaxed and reinvigorated.
The old part of the town, charming in its way to present its-self, is the heart beating of the whole town. Walking through its alleys, you’ll find little churches and little squares, which architecture is a witness of the town-life through the centuries, until the balconies, settled on the cliff dropping into the sea, receiving a breathtaking naturalistic show.
Polignano has, among its sons, two very talented personalities: Domenico Modugno, one of the most famous Italian singers (“Volare” is one of the most sang song all over the world), and Pino Pascali, artist, sculptor and set designer, who gained credit nationally and internationally, and to whom Polignano dedicated its Contemporary Art Museum.
