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.
