Polignano a mare
In the blue,
Blue Flag 2021, Polignano is called "Pearl of the Adriatic" for the twelve kilometers of coastline characterized by a crystalline sea and by the succession of caves dug by the action of the sea.
Birthplace of the singer Domenico Modugno, is located about thirty kilometers south of the Apulian capital.
A meeting point of different cultures, Polignano a Mare preserves an evocative historical center full of Arab, Byzantine, Spanish and Norman traces like the remains of the four defense towers that encircled the village. Of particular interest are the 1295 Matrice church dedicated to the Assunta and the arch of the Porta, once the only access road to the town.
Important in Polignano is the work of the artist Pino Pascali, guarded and promoted by the Pino Pascali Museum Foundation, an evocative exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art and designed to host exhibitions, seminars and art events, in addition to the prestigious Pino Pascali Award.
