The knowledge of the ancient civilization of the Messapi is the main theme of the activities promoted by the Messapic Documentation Center of Oria. It is the most important archaeological museum of Oria, which is located in the ancient Palazzo Martini, under which extends an archaeological excavation that can be visited. Here is preserved a rich collection of finds related to the Messapians, who settled in the Apulian territory between the sixth and third centuries BC. The museum itinerary includes some funerary objects that were part of rich burials that emerged from the excavations in the surroundings. Among the most significant finds are the trozzelle, characteristic messapic vases.
