Church · Tourist Spot
Seated atop the highest hill in the city, and dedicated to St. Mary of the Assumption, Cathedral of Ostuni is a late Gothic-style cathedral, begun in 1435 and completed some 60 years later. Walk through the narrow cobbled streets of the whitewashed old town and up the hill to the imposing basilica. Explore the interior, which was rebuilt in the 18th century in the Latin-cross plan, and is composed of three naves, supported by two rows of supporting columns. The church contains several paintings depicting the life of Jesus, also from the 1700s. Cathedral of Ostuni is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Charming cathedral with an impressive rose window. The interior is really helped by the presence of ample labelling in English courtesy of the Rotary organisation.  more »
  • Puglia is full of beautiful architecture. Adds to the charm of a walk through the center of Ostuni. Fall has been the perfect weather and few tourists.  more »
  • Typical Puglian architecture. Go, see and admire. Then enjoy a slice of pizza with a beer, or similar. Happy travels..
  • Authentic town with beautiful views of the sea and olive plantations. The cathedral's architecture is outstanding, as well as the artwork in all other churches and cathedrals nearby. Quite a busy town, but definitely worth taking in the beauty of it while stopping and admiring it for a few minutes.
