Polignano a Mare, once known for having given birth to Domenico Modugno, is one of those places which, once visited, would never be left.
White houses set among themselves and overlooking the sea, paradisiacal coves and crystal clear waters.
Walking through the historical center of Polignano, one has the impression of being inside a real theatre of pose, so much is the peculiarity of the houses and the alleys that are interwoven between them.
The scent and the noise of the sea allow you to enjoy beautiful flowering balconies, courtyards that sprout suddenly and white staircases adorned with poetic verses.
The two main monuments are the Master Church of Santa Maria Assunta and the Abbey of San Vito, a building built on the marina and protruding right on the sea.
The most tourist destination of Polignano a Mare, however, is the amazing cove of Lama Monachile; It is a cove nestled between two rocky walls on which overlook the myriad houses of the old town.
Lama Monachile is a kind of gateway to the many sea caves that are wedged below the beautiful village and represents, perhaps, the best-known image of Apulian tourism.
