Santuario di S. Michele (Sanctuary of St Michael)

Recommended
Built in the Romanesque-Gothic transition style, the sanctuary has an isolated octagonal campanile. There is a long covered staircase leading to the very attractive bronze door, a Byzantine work dating from 1076, which leads to the nave covered in ogives opening onto the cave where St Michael appeared to the Bishop of Siponto. The marble statue of the Saint, is by Andrea Sansovino.
