The church together with its info is really interesting. Beter than the churches in Manfredonia. The information provided at the site is really worth the visit

I visited this site with a group of international students.Those interested in art,architecture and history found it fascinating,The middle age church and the ultra modern reconstruction of the early Christian Basilica of the modern stucture some how blend together.The effect of the lighting in the early evening is quite spectacular.

The church is wonderful: the simple and pure lines of Romanesque style face up with Tresoldi's installation (the early Christian basilic made with wire cloth). You can admire the Madonna Icon of the 5th century forgetting time&commitments&everything else.
The church(es) stands up in the middle of the archological site: out of date but - surprisingly - contemporary.

It's a small church compared to the other Romanesque churches in Puglia, but the interesting feature of this site is the unique structure built over the archeological site adjacent to the church. Unfortunately the crypt was closed that day. Beware of the church's opening hours.

A very interesting reconstruction of a paleochristian basilica on the side of a romantic church.
It's worth the time of you are around!
