Storia comune di Castellana Grotte provincia di Bari

The name comes from “Castellania”, that means “house of the castellan”, and in 1950 the word “Grotte” (that means “caves”) was added to indicate the presence of the karstic caves discovered in 1938. Probably it rose up in the middle age thanks to the monks of the Benedictine convent in Conversano, nearby the town, but the first document in which it is mentioned dates back to the X century. The monks and then the abbesses ruled the town until the XII century and later, after the plunder of the Hungarian army, it became part of the Conversano county.
