An Adriatic port, Egnazia was an important city, first Messapian (Gnathia) and then Roman (Egnatia). The archaeological area allows you to walk along the streets and recognize the main buildings in the largest archaeological area of a Roman city in Puglia. Close to the Via Traiana was an important junction of the Roman road system for trade and contacts with the East. Public buildings, houses and tombs, including large ones, tell the story in a snapshot of the life of the settlement. The National Archaeological Museum offers an itinerary among the finds that it preserves from the Bronze Age to the Middle Ages.
