Six Churches Open for Tourist and Cultural Purposes

From 5 pm to 9 pm (10 pm for Basilica Cathedral) until 30 September 2021 

On the initiative of the Town Councillor of Culture, Rosanna Perricci, and the Tourism Town Councillor, Cristian Iaia, once again this year, thanks to the success of the public registered over the years, 6 Monopoli churches will be open to the public 4 hours a day until 30 September.

The initiative originated due to the partnership between the City of Monopoli and the Diocese of Conversano-Monopoli, aims to guarantee the continuous and organic opening of the most important churches in the city, making them available to visitors.

All sites (Amalfi, San Francesco d’Assisi, Purgatorio, San Leonardo and Santa Teresa) will be open from 5pm to 9pm. Basilica Cathedral will extend the afternoon hours, opening until 10pm.
