Ostuni città bianca

Genoese outpost in front of the Savoy Pigna, the ancient Castel Dho (now Castelfranco and Castelvittorio) preserves the structure of elliptic compact medieval military garrison. Several houses are decorated with carved stone portals, the central square, surrounded by galleries with old stone fountain, climb to the highest point occupied by the parish of Santo Stefano. Rebuilt in 1764, with bas-reliefs in the jambs of the portal side, hosts a valuable crucifix attributed to Maragliano. Situated at the feet of the hill covered with olive trees on which stands the country, the abandoned church of S. Maria Assunta (close to the source of sulfur Lake PIGO) originate from the thirteenth century but was rebuilt in elegant Baroque Piedmont. Thick chestnut and mixed forests surrounding the town. 

Among the cultural events, please note in your agenda the turtùn Festival (August); the Chestnut Festival (October) and the  Festival of S. Stephen on December 26th.

Ostuni città bianca

History and legend mingle in this charming village perched: legend has it that Bayard was the name of the champion horse of Rinaldo the latter visited this hill of rare charm. 

But Hill Bajardo assumed religious importance even during the Golden Age the Iron Age (tenth century BC.) becoming a place of worship of the Druids, Celtic priests. 
The most interesting part of the country is high. There are the remains of the Church of St. Nicholas, built on the ruins of an ancient pagan temple sacred to the god Abelia and destroyed by a devastating earthquake. On the morning of 27 February 1887, when the whole population was in church to receive ashes of Holy Wednesday, the earth shook and the roof of the church collapsed on the people of Bayard, decimated. Today, nothing seems to have been touched. The church is still without a roof, with the outer walls intact, all that remains of a stone altar and a grass instead of the floor.  Do not miss Porta dei Saraceni in local stone, the Oratorio di San Salvatore preserving a precious altarpiece depicting the Transfiguration in 1500 by Emanuele Maccario, the characteristic way Portaro Plan, and finally, just outside the village in a northerly direction The Romanesque church of St. Gregory from the eleventh century.
