HISTORY

The territory of San Pancrazio Salentino was definitely interested in phenomena of anthropization from the Iron Age to the first century AD.
The remains and excavations of basilic caves dating back to the 4th-5th century to the year 1000 are visible in several areas. Such settlements consist of: caves, silos, tombs and laurels.
S. Pancrazio’s first living nucleus is formed in the medieval period according to a spontaneous development around its generating elements: the church of S. Antonio and the archbishop’s castle, the seat of the summer residence of the bishop of Brindisi.
The medieval urban nucleus, following various socio-economic events (Turkish invasions, natural disasters), developed very slowly, even because the real production centers (masseries) were scattered around the country.
In 1547 the country was attacked by 100 Turks on horseback racializing and capturing some inhabitants, asking for a ransom. As a result of this event, the country once again abandoned.
In 1722, San Pancrazio Salentino then consisted of a few blocks around the church of Sant’Antonio da Padova and the only important building made after the first medieval nucleus was the Church of the Annunziata Maria, placed among other things outside the perimeter urban of that era.
Only in the second half of the nineteenth century there is a new urban structure and a remarkable development of the town, with the construction of the railway and the new Lecce-Taranto (in the urban section), along which the most significant public buildings are realized: the main square, the municipal palace and the main church.
