An evening wandering in #Brindisi between #Rome’s ruins and #Templars heritage.

We took a walk in Brindisi Center. Into the crowd of modern buildings, it’s still possible to wander in old roads, look at the ancient Roman’s ruins, see the Cathedral and watch the Templars Cloister.

Brindisi was the end of Rome’s “Via Appia” Road. It’s still possible to see a copy of the original two Roman’s columns, which marked the end of the empire built’s road.

Brindisi was one of Templars Knight places, too.

Here are some few pictures.

Brindisi – Archeology Museum

Today visit to Brindisi’s Archeology Museum. It is astonishing how such an interesting place has got a free entrance.
Recently renewed it is definitely, absoluty worth a visit. I could even say that beside of harbour, the beautful sandy beach nearby, the fresh food, this museum alone makes Brindisi a mandatory step when visiting Puglia.
I’ve always liked archeology, and here there’s a lot to see:
– Messapi’s age
– Greek age
– Roman age

I have liked a lot the artifacts coming from underwater archeo-campaigns.
Then the suggestion is clear: go and visit the city and the museum!

ciao
