The interior is fairly spartan but the paintings of the stations of the cross & altar area are almost modern/cubist in style. The departure from traditional ecclesiastical art is striking & fully justifies a visit. If driving to Alberobello DO NOT arrive late morning or...More

There is a serenity and calmness within, like many churches of this stature, but I particularly liked the powerful simplicity of some of the religious paintings within. The Basilica is maintained in pristine condition, and is definitely worth a visit ...

Since we were in town we walked around and visited the center and the basilic. Nice church as most of the churches in Italy but nothing very impressive. Just go if you have time.

It's exactly in the centre of Alberobello and walking distance to the Trulli's. It's amazing to find a Basilica in Alberobello. It's so tall it can be viewed far away. Very well preserved and could be visited when in the town for the trulli's.

We just had a walk around the city and found this Basilica. It was a nice Italian church in the other part of the town, surrounded by restaurants and small caffees. If you fancy a walk and will be near - take a look-in.

Lovely looking church from the outside and there are interesting wood carvings inside the church. Definitely worth the short walk from the main square if only to enjoy the architecture of the church.

Nice front to the church with some steps. There are two fairly new paintings on the walls of the side chapels that are very good and probably painted by the same artist as the stations of the cross

This is the first basilica dedicated to the Medici family and its architecture from inside and outside is beautiful, worth the fast walk from the centre
