Storia comune di Brindisi provincia di Brindisi

Its first name was “Brunda”, a messapic word that means “stag head”, referring to the shape of the port; then the Romans turned it into “Brundisium”. It had always been the competing town of Taranto and it had its flourishing moments especially with the Romans and with Frederick II of Swabia, when it became the sailing port for crusaders. Furthermore Frederick II married his wife Isabella of Brienne just in the Cathedral of Brindisi. After the Unification of Italy and the opening of the Suez Canal it became the last station of the “India Mail” train (1870-1914) and during the Second World War it had the role of Italian Capital after Vittorio Emanuele III escape from Rome (September 1943-February 1944). Nowadays Brindisi is an industrial centre flourishing in chemicals and energy fields. 



Informazioni turistiche comune di Brindisi provincia di Brindisi

Brindisi stands on a plain territory overlooking on the Adriatic Sea. It’s a very old city, rich in history and traditions. In fact in the old town it preserves important archaeological findings and lots of monuments belonging to different times: from the Swabian Castle (the so-called “Great Castle” or “Land Castle”) to the Aragones Castle, close to the sea, from the Cathedral to the two Romans columns, always recognized as a symbol of the town. Brindisi has a beautiful coast, sandy and rocky as well, where there are lots of beaches that shows enchanting landscapes with some old watchtowers. Whereas in the inland parts of the town there are lots of fortified farms (“masserie”) plunged into a sweep of hundred-year-old olive trees where you can follow the olive route or the wine route. Its environmental heritage it’s such interesting that there are some nature reserves (the most important one is the WWF Nature Reserve of Torre Guaceto). But Brindisi keeps its importance thanks to its port (an active port for its good communications with Greece, Albania and Turkey) and also for its airport. In Brindisi there is also the UNLB and the WFP-UNHRD.
