Polignano a Mare

Welcome to Italy in Photos and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of Polignano a Mare, a mesmerizing city in in the region of Puglia: – Polignano a Mare is a town on the Adriatic Sea, in the region of Puglia, southern Italy. It is a place where history, nature, and culture blend together to create a unique and unforgettable experience for visitors. Polignano a Mare has a rich and ancient history, dating back to the Neolithic period. It was a flourishing seaport and trading centre under the Greeks and the Romans, and later a strategic stronghold for various invaders, such as the Huns, the Normans, and the Aragonese. The old town is a maze of white-washed houses, narrow alleys, and stone-paved squares, decorated with colourful flowers and poetic verses. You can admire the Marchesale Arch, the ancient gateway to the town, the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, with its old clock, and the statue of Domenico Modugno, the famous singer and songwriter who was born here. Polignano a Mare is blessed with some of the most beautiful and clean beaches in Puglia, awarded with the Blue Flag for their quality. The most famous and iconic one is Lama Monachile, also known as Cala Porto, a small pebble beach nestled between two towering cliffs, where the turquoise water contrasts with the white limestone. It is a stunning sight, especially from the Balconata sul Mare, a panoramic balcony overlooking the sea. Other beaches worth visiting are Cala Paura, a sandy beach with a fishing village, and Cala San Giovanni, a rocky cove with a natural pool. Polignano a Mare is also known for its natural caves, carved by the sea and the wind over millennia. Some of them are accessible by boat, such as the Grotta Palazzese, the Grotta Ardito, and the Grotta delle Rondinelle, where you can admire the stalactites, the stalagmites, and the crystal-clear water. Others are open to the public, such as the Grotta di Santa Barbara, a former church and refuge, and the Grotta Piana, a museum and cultural centre. The caves are also a testimony of the prehistoric human settlements that inhabited this area, as evidenced by the archaeological findings
