Via San Quirico - From Torre Normanno Sveva XII-XIII secolo, Italy
Via San Quirico is an ancient cobblestone street, located in the picturesque hilltop town of Cisternino in the rugged region of Puglia, Italy. It is a great example of a traditional Apulian alleyway, featuring a combination of white-washed walls and warm brick buildings. Looming over the streets and rooftops you can find the historic 18th century Matrice Church, with a stunning tiled roof and intricate bell tower framed against the stunning backdrop of the Itria Valley. Along the street, you can find restaurants, cafes, and souvenir stores, and admire the architectural details. Enjoy a stroll down the Via San Quirico, and be sure to pause in the shade of the alleyway to admire the views of the valley.
