Polignano a Mare

15 km from Torre Cintola
If there is a place capable of telling the beauty of Puglia, it is undoubtedly Polignano a Mare. Called the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, Polignano marks a clear boundary between land and water, with its cliffs sculpted by the waves and houses perched above the blue sea. Once you cross the Arch of the Porta, you enter a maze of streets: alleys with charm and influences from Arab, Spanish, Byzantine cultures, overlooking the sea from the famous balconies, clinging to the cliffside. Among the must-see destinations is the Church Matrice dating back to the thirteenth century, the Pino Pascali Museum, with works by the famous artist, and Lama Monachile, a postcard that best expresses the charm of Puglia.


5 km from Torre Cintola
History, sea, culture, nature, fun: Monopoli embraces all of this and offers endless possibilities to those who visit it. Wandering through the narrow streets of its historic center, protected by mighty walls, every alley leads to a marvel: the Castle of Charles V, the old port, the Cathedral of the Madonna della Madia, Palazzo Palmieri, the Baroque churches, and the sea, always present and infinitely vast in the background. The beaches of Monopoli and Capitolo are bathed in crystal-clear waters and offer all the services, comforts, and entertainment of the larger beaches, as well as the relaxation and exclusivity of the coves with emerald green seabeds.


24 km from Torre Cintola
The famous Trulli, the narrow and winding alleys, the dry stone walls, the lime. These are the elements that dominate as you stroll through the streets of the historic center of Alberobello: a landscape of enchantment, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among the places to visit are the Church of Sant’Antonio, unique and unparalleled, also in the shape of a trullo, and the Minor Basilica of the Holy Doctors, which houses the images of the Madonna di Loreto and the patron saints Cosmas and Damian.

Castellana Grotte

21 km from Torre Cintola
A path of over 2 km, 70 meters deep, where stalactites, stalagmites, fossils, cavities, and caverns create a real underground museum, among the most spectacular in Italy: it is the complex of the Castellana Caves, located about 20 km from Torre Cintola. A short distance from the center is the Convent of the Franciscan Friars, where the image of the Madonna della Vetrana is kept, the protector of the city, celebrated every year on January 11 during the Festival of Bonfires, the giant piles of burning wood.


36 km from Torre Cintola
Just over 30 km away from our resort and Ostuni, the famous “white city”, so called because of the color of its characteristic old town, populated by craft shops and typical restaurants. Wandering around the ancient village, the streets lead to the Cathedral in Romanesque-Gothic style dating back to the fifteenth century, in Piazza della Libertà, where stands the Baroque spire of Sant’Oronzo, and in front of the suggestive Scoppa arch, which unites the two eighteenth-century buildings of the Bishop’s Palace and the old Seminary.


105 km from Torre Cintola
As the capital of the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani and the fourth most populous city in Puglia, Andria boasts its famous and captivating Castel del Monte as its main tourist attraction. The 13th-century castle, commissioned by Frederick II, stands in the heart of the Murgia region. Its architectural style blends classical, Gothic, and Arabic elements, earning it UNESCO World Heritage status since 1996. Key attractions within Andria’s center, accessed through the Porta Sant’Andrea, include the Ducal Palace, the Town Hall, and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. Andria also offers a wide variety of natural attractions such as the Gurgo Depression, the Trimoggia Cave, the Alta Murgia National Park, and numerous historical monuments.
