Nearly placed in the epicentre of Taranto, Lecce and Brindisi and not only far from the sea, Manduria was a important town of the old “Messapia” and is a town of very old origins, proved by an historical and archaeological patrimony that makes it unique.

The very warm climate in a flat land makes Manduria an attractive place to tourists loving bathing, cultural, religious, oenological and gastronomic aspects.

Manduria was one of the most interesting and powerful towns of Messapian Dodecapolis. It still keeps important monuments from that period, like megalithic walls and several graves, that together with S.Pietro Mandurino’s Church and the Archaeological Park represent a obligatory stopover for the educated traveller and the academic since the nineteenth century.
