Take a look inside the Oria Cathedral and each of the other churches in Oria to marvel at the extensive use of marble and the magnificent decorated ceilings.

Lovely hilltop setting, after wine tasting in Manduria at Consorzio Produttori Vini. A stroll round the town, followed by drinks and snacks in a lovely trattoria underneath the castle. Then the cathedral, which is newly cleaned and has a beautiful mosaic dome. Lovely day.
