Full description
Tricarico is one of the most interesting medieval historical centers of Puglia. Start your guided tour from the fortified fortress of the 11th century and the cylindrical Norman tower standing 27 meters high.

Continue towards the church of St. Clare and the Palazzo Ducale, known locally as the castle of the Prince of Bisignano, one of the most important buildings in Tricarico. For centuries, this was the residence of the Sanseverino family, and today houses the Archaeological Museum with important vases and coins found in the area.

Next, visit the Arab neighborhoods of the Ràbata and Saracena and the Norman districts of Monte and Piano before arriving at the church of St. Maria del Carmine. Visit its convent to enjoy a picturesque view of the Rabata and Saracena neighborhoods, with the underlying Saracen gardens.

Finish your tour at the 12th-century Cathedral of St. Maria Assunta, originally in Romanesque style, rebuilt in the 17th century by the Carafa bishops.
