Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Puglia / Province of Brindisi / Ostuni / Duomo di Ostuni
Seated atop the highest hill in the city, and dedicated to St. Mary of the Assumption, Duomo di Ostuni is a late Gothic-style cathedral, begun in 1435 and completed some 60 years later. Walk through the narrow cobbled streets of the whitewashed old town and up the hill to the imposing basilica. Explore the interior, which was rebuilt in the 18th century in the Latin-cross plan, and is composed of three naves, supported by two rows of supporting columns. The church contains several paintings depicting the life of Jesus, also from the 1700s. Duomo di Ostuni is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

As you stroll up through the old city you will come across the cathedral. We happened to enter just as Sunday service was concluding. The building boasts an ornate ceiling and a lovely rose window.

The church is unique and has a very interesting rose window which is similar to the one in Lecce. Very nice frescoes inside.

It is always so amazing to see these pieces of history from the Cathedral to the white city on this hilltop. A town that presents itself as art of history and the canvas is this earth we live on.
We stayed two days in ostuni, and we really wanted to visit the catherdral . We checked the opening time, it should be open. But each time we go there, the door was closed, and there is no any information about why it’s closed. I asked a lady she lived nearby, she told me Saturday should always open, I waited outside Saturday morning till almost 11:00am, it’s still not open. The catherdral should be very impressive, but we couldn’t give 2 stars. The service is too bad!
Google says it’s open, the official Puglia tourism website says it’s open, yet here we are, a group of tourists, standing outside and it’s closed. This sort of thing is totally infuriating - a waste of valuable holiday time and easily avoided by making sure opening hours are kept updated. It’s just not good enough.
A nice 15th century church. Beautiful ceiling mural and perhaps worth popping in quickly if that’s your thing. A small donation is expected.
Ostuni Cathedral is the main monument to see in Ostuni. It is at the top of the highest hill, so you have to climb a little in the alleys to discover it. Funny facade, rather original in Romanesque-Gothic style, a mixture of related and convex curves. You can also admire a beautiful stone rose window in the heart of which sits Christ surrounded by 7 cherubs. Its 24 rays represent the 24 hours of the day. Inside, don't miss the ceiling fresco depicting Jesus chasing the merchants from the Temple.
