Francavilla Fontana is a flourishing productive reality, favored since ancient times by the happy geographical position between the Adriatic and the Ionian. The territory preserves the signs of the ancient Via Appia and still shows the testimonies of a human presence that dates back to prehistoric times. Persisting cultural caves of the age-old eneolithic period, and in 1950 fragments of Neolithic vessels were found. In 1978, in the new district of San Lorenzo, a vast Messapic necropolis emerged. Along with the messages you must have four impressive “mirror” testimonies – circular towers with defensive, sight and burial functions. Signs of the hermitic life of Christianity of the first centuries can be identified in the cave-church of Santa Croce farm where there are still frescoes of the seventeenth century. Francavilla is a city rich of history, art and culture to discover and discover through the numerous palaces with the architectural lines of the XVII – XVIII century, the baroque of imposing churches including the Pontifical Basilica with the highest majolica dome of Salento, the majestic Castle of the Imperial Principle for over two centuries, the seventeenth-century portals of the palaces, the city’s large vestiges of ancient walls that cradle the ancient nucleus, and the alleyways and narrow streets converging into the various “piazzas” of the historic center that become the natural and evocative scenery where the Rites of Holy Week are among the most singular and suggestive of Apulia and represent, in the province of Brindisi, a true uniqueness. The Francavilla farm, called the “Land of the Imperial Princes”, is characterized by vast expanse of olive trees and dotted with over seventy ancient masserie, numerous trulli and designed by dry walls. In the city center, between the ancient balconies and loggias of the palaces, the scent of traditional pastries is sweet, including the tasty sweet sweet “copeta” and the “curly” confetti made of roasted almonds and natural aromas. The old town, bordered by the three ancient city gates, offers the visitor the opportunity to enjoy a quiet walk – a significant part of the pedestrian island – in the shadow of church bells: the Holy Spirit; San Sebastiano; S.Alfonso dei Liguori; Santa Chiara; Pontifical Basilica; Immaculate; Maria SS Carmona; St. Mary’s SS Sanctuary of the Cross. In Rome, among all the palaces, the Giannuzzi-Bottari-Carissimo is distinguished. Piazza Umberto I, with its Clock Tower, is a gathering place for thousands of young people. The loggia Argentina, now Leo, is a Puglia medieval sculptural art work.
