Monastero di San Giacomo Maggiore di Bari (PUP107)

Palo Del Colle Puglia
Book Now

House of the Monache Benedettine Olivetane

This ancient monastery is a perfect stop for those wishing to visit a historic town in the Italy's beautiful southern region of Puglia. The capital, Bari, is only a short drive away while the township of Palo del Colle is within walking distance.

Palo del Colle has a rich history dating back to ancient Greek and Roman settlement. The town sits on a hill and dominates a wide and flat territory, making it ideal for military defense. In fact, the town became the center of the Greek colony because of this position. Those travelers who enjoy architectural masterpieces will like the town's Santa Maria della Porta Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century.
