Polignano a mare - From Lama Monachile, Italy
Polignano a Mare is a coastal town in the Bari province of southern Italy. With its combination of suggestive coastal views and charming lanes lined with traditional white-washed homes and balconies, the area has become a popular tourist destination. The old town of Polignano a Mare has a spectacular harbor lined with grand cliffs. Its pebble beaches invite visitors to take a dip in the refreshing sea. One must-see spot is Cala Porto, a beautiful beach reached through a gorge-like trail. Nearby is the Grotta Palazzese, an ancient cave built in the 18th century and converted into a luxurious restaurant. From its terrace, visitors can admire the tranquil blue waters and the unique coastline, even if they don’t stay for a meal. Other attractions include Ponte di Porto, a bridge built in 1585, and the Baroque Sant’Agostino Church. Don't miss out on La Torre Fighittoga, a medieval clock tower located near the Municipal Palace. Visitors should also enjoy watching the local fishermen unload their catch from offshore.
