Grotta Palazzese, in Polignano a Mare, in Apulia, is a centuries-old marine cathedral made of stone vaults and silence. It is likely one of the most beautiful grottos that worm under the town, whose historical heart overlooks the Adriatic Sea from a Karstic spur that juts out from the mountain.
It is indeed so beautiful that in the 18th century the most powerful landowner of the area decided to throw all of his parties here. Within a few years, it became a popular destination for the upper class youth during their Grand Tours.
Today the grotto is part of the Grotta Palazzese Hotel and Restaurant.
Suspended on the sea, in a shiny carpet of quiet and peace.
