  • As often happens beauty is hidden. This is the case of the small church of Mount Purgatory by Martina Franca built in 1652. Clad outside with limestone chianches, it remains discreet and reverent compared to St. Martin's Basilica. A small casket enclosing a Baroque altar on which is placed a stone statue of Our Lady with child. In one corner is placed a bronze bell from the same period. A balcony at the top houses an organ and the entire ceiling is frescoed. It is usually open to the public and you do not pay the entrance fee. It is highly recommended to visit.

  • Small and unexpected is the Church of Mount Purgatory. The structure overlooks the square from which stands the imposing façade of the Basilica of San Martino and it is not difficult to find it open during the periods of the year in which there are major tourist flows. The church is small, but very beautiful. The ceiling and the altar with the beautiful stone statue of the Madonna are of considerable interest. If you are in Martina and find the door open do not hesitate to enter (do not pay any ticket) you will not be disappointed!
