Brindisi overview

Nestled off the Adriatic Sea in the Apulia region of Italy, the city of Brindisi is the capital of a province bearing the same name. Because of its rich history, Brindisi has long been a point of interest for visitors. With a past that spans thousands of years, this port city houses a wealth of elegant historical monuments.

One way to start your tour of Brindisi’s past is with a visit to Museo Archeologico Provinciale Ribezzo, which displays thousands of ancient sculptures, statues and other archeological treasures in English-friendly exhibits.

The Roman Column is another attraction that tops visitors’ lists. This towering white structure gleams against the water, marking the staircase that leads into a promenade against the sea. Originally, there were two columns, but the second was gifted to another Italian city in the 17th century.

Cathedrals are a common sight throughout Brindisi, and their medieval architecture dots the streets throughout town. One of the most popular cathedrals is Duomo, a fine example of 11th-century architecture. Although the original structure was destroyed in an earthquake, visitors can still tour the existing cathedral, which was rebuilt in the 18th century. Pieces of the original cathedral can still be seen in the reconstructed cathedral. Also of note is Santa Maria del Casale, a church built during the 13th century by Prince Philip of Taranto.

Ancient castles are another of Brindisi’s gems, and noteworthy examples include Aragonese Castle and Castello Grande.
