Bitritto

Description

A center with a predominant agricultural vocation, located on the foothills of the Murgia area, Bitritto, whose name is documented since the XI century, submitted, like all Apulian lands, the domination of Normans, Angevins, Aragons and Spanish.
During the recent restoration works at the XIII century castle, some wells, surely edified before year 1000, have been brought to light, which leads the original foundation of the city to a much earlier period.
Not to miss: the Cathedral Church entitled to Our Lady of Constantinople, built in 1774 in late Baroque style with rusticated stone. The altar is dominated by an altarpiece depicting the Madonna Assunta, by Michele Montrone of 1865, a copy of a shovel kept at the Cathedral of Bari. Among other artworks preserved worth a visit: the gold and silver reliquary that preserves a bone of the proto-martyr St. Stephen and the altarpiece of Saint Sebastian.
