Brindisi is a city that has had multiple influences: its Roman past can still be admired thanks to the ruins of Casimiro Street and Virgilio Square, while the Aragonese domination left behind the perimeter wall, which still surrounds part of the historical centre. Closer to the cathedral square, you will be able to admire the palaces along the main road in the historical centre. Built during the Medieval and Renaissance periods, you can see the 16th†century Granafei Nervegna Palace, the 14th†century loggia of the Balsano Palace, and the 14th century De Cateriano archways. Like all the main cities in Apulia, Brindisi lies by the sea. Indeed, it is possible to go for a pleasant walk along the seafront. Continue towards the small island of Sant'Andrea; standing at the entrance to the port, its fortress is a symbol of the Swabian dynasty and its battle against invasions from the East.
