TerritorySheering on the sea, on a surface of around 63 km2, stands a triangle shaped little town, Polignano a Mare. Old Neapolis has very ancient origins and it is about 30 km in the south east of Bari. You can get to Polignano taking SS16.
Its nearness to the regional capital of Puglia (Apulia) has given this little town, composed of around 17.000 inhabitants, a strategic geographic position making it a glimmer of the Mediterranean and to the Orient. Polignano a Mare, where the land meets the sea, has always been a crossroad for wayfarers of different cultures that followed one another throughout the centuries: Arab and Byzantine, Spanish and Norman people have left indelible traces of their presence.

Like a coin, Polignano a Mare can offer his visitors both of his sides.
The first is the sea, which enabled the settlement of primitive people in the marine caves; the second are the fertile countryside, with its marshes and their typical Mediterranean vegetation, and the archaeological sites, which prove what an active and dynamic centre Polignano was and still is. That is why Polignano a Mare can combine tradition and development in a mystic and indissoluble union. In fact, its charming, long story with important agricultural and touristic settlements enable this little pearl to provide its inhabitants with the quietness of a provincial centre and the ferment of an ever-evolutioning economy.

Nowadays, Polignano appears to his many visitors as a little town with a great potential because it has preserved most of its historical and cultural heritage and, at the same time, it’s projected in the future through a sustainable development that takes care of its natural resources.
