Constituted by the numerous finds of the ancient city of Gnathia, near Fasano, the Archaeological Park of Egnazia is located a few kilometers from the sea and in correspondence with the ancient axis of connection between Bari and Brindisi. The history of the excavations begins at the beginning of the nineteenth century with the depredations of the French officers, to continue in the period of the historic famine of 1846, when the inhabitants raked pots, precious objects and grave goods desecrating the ancient tombs to sell them. We will have to wait until 1912 for systematic excavations, which resumed in several phases in the 40s and 60s, up to the 80s to continue today. Adjacent to the site, outside the walls, is the Archaeological Museum.
