San Ferdinando di Puglia

Description

Founded in 1848 by Ferdinando II Borbone on the right-hand side of the river Ofanto, San Ferdinando presents a geometric plan well implanted in the environment.

The heart of the city center is Piazza Umberto I, with its famous clock tower, built in 1900, over the antique well of San Cassiano. Opposite to the tower arises the Mother Church, built in XIX century. Which preserves inside a wooden Cross of the Neapolitan Art School of King San Ferdinando, patron of the city.

The Civic Museum, opened in 1984, features two sections: the Ethnographic area proposes objects of the peasant civilization, whilst the Archeological area displays a large collection of exhibits from the Neolithic to the Middle Ages.

On the outskirts of the city it is possible to admire a Roman bridge, built on the outline of the via Traiana between I and II century A.D. The bridge has a donkey back shape and features a series of wooden poles of oak covered with concrete that create five open cusp archways.

Not to miss: a series of Bronze Age hypogeums (underground tombs) at approx. 2km in the Terra di Corte area
