The historical main building of the Masseria San Domenico dates back to the XIV century and was used by the Knights of Malta, whose main center in Puglia was S. Stefano, as a watch tower against Saracens’ attacks.
Masseria San Domenico encompasses this historic main building with its ancient slits and chimneys whose architectural structures developed around the beginning of the XX century following the needs of the agricultural activities.
Masseria San Domenico is located in the heart of Apulia: along the Adriatic coastline and the Itria Valley, nestled amongst ancient olives trees, only a few steps away from the sea and surrounded by the towns of Alberobello (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica.
A valley of rolling green hills, criss-crossed by dry-stone walls, where olives trees, vineyards and country paths preserve the natural profile.
