Crispiano

Description

Crispiano is situated inland, at only 16km North of Taranto. The territory of Crispiano is surrounded by a series of hills of which the highest are near to the border with Martina Franca.

At the times of the Magna Grecia the area was intensively inhabited. A lot of evidence is supplied from the exhibits found in the funeral chambers of important inhabitants of the time that are conserved in the same museum, known as the "Gold of Taranto" collection ("gli Ori di Taranto").
