The guided tour has as its starting point the cave dedicated to St. Michael, the Archangel, located at the foot of the town hill and set in the rocky slopes of the Murgia plateau. The next stop is the rock church of the Madonna della Croce. Then, with a 20-minute walk along the Lama Matitani valley, which offers characteristic panoramic views of the Murgia, we get up to the historic center of Minervino. As an alternative to walking, you can move uphill by car to continue the guided tour in the ancient town center.
The third stop is the “Scesciola” district, a tangle of alleys, stairs and arches, and the cathedral of S. Maria Assunta, perfect example of the Romanesque-Apulian style. The visit ends with the Civic Archaeological Museum inside the Minervino townhall, originally a Norman castle.
