Ruvo di Puglia
The town of Ruvo di Puglia was already inhabited by the Peucitii, between the V and III centuries. Later it became a wealthy town with its own currency and, during the Roman rule, an important station along the Trajan Way.
The town was fortified by the Normans and the Swabian, also a Cathedral was built between the XII and XIII century.
The Cathedral is one of the best examples of Apulian-Romanesque architecture divided in three naves with a beautiful rose window. On the lower section there are three finely carved portals surmounted by blind arches. Inside, the naves are divided by arches that lie beneath a gallery decorated by carved animals and human figures.
The Jatta Museum of Ruvo houses one of the most complete collections of vases of Puglia.
