  • Do not be fooled by the plain exterior - the inside is cool, peaceful and amazing paintings. make sure you take the steps behind the altar - the views back across the church are superb

  • Beautiful massive cathedral for a smaller town in Puglia Italy. Very plain architecture on the outside, mostly yellow stone work, with a slight fancy facade. Once inside, the cathedral is breathtakingly massive, multiple colors of marble with ornate chapels lining the side aisles. There are stairs on both sides of the altar that allow visitors to walk up and behind the altar giving you a different view of the cathedral. Worth a short visit if visiting Monopoli.
  • The Cathedral of Monopoli is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Italy, and we have visited quite a few. The colours of the marble are incredible. Don't miss this great example of fine art and you'll be charmed as well.
