Ruvo di Puglia

 

RUVO DI PUGLIA

 

Ruvo boasts a long history rooted in legends and myth as witnessed by the heroes, gods and divinities. athletes, imaginary or real animals painted on the Greek, Magna Greek, and Iapigian ceramics preserved at the National Museum “Jatta”. The museum is a unique and extraordinary example of 18th century collecting art: it displays rich thousands of rare historical, artistic, and archaeological finds.
The old town centre, surrounded by airy tree avenues, develops around the 13th Cathedral, one of the finest example of Apulian Romanesque.
Erected on a fraction of the old Roman town and on some Paleochristian buildings, it stands out for its beautiful portal , the decorations and the works of art kept inside the church.
Very close, under the Church of Purgatorio, the underground cave, known as “Grotta di S. Cleto”, claims the legendary Christian origins of Ruvo.
The old town, one of the best preserved in the region, presents, along its lucid paved streets, a series of Renaissance noble palaces including Palazzo Spada, famous for its engraved balustrade.
Among the worth-visiting churches we suggest the convents of St. Domenico and St. Michele Archangelo, rich of value paintings and statues.
In Ruvo territory, among silver olive groves and dry stone walls, the rural house of Calentano with the annexed sanctuary of Annunziata is an oasis of peace and spirituality.
Most of the Ruvo territory is part of the National Park of Alta Murgia, well-known for its landscape, nature, and historical and cultural sites: there are wide woods, fields, and some example of Mediterranean steppe.
The local gastronomy is a triumph of tastes: Murgian meat and cheese, “cardoncelli” mushrooms, wild herbs, dressed with extra virgin olive oil and matched with superb sparkling white or rosé wines, or with robust red wines make the visit in this corner of Apulia stretched between the blue of the Adriatic sea and the colours of the rugged and wild Murgian landscape unforgettable.
