Grottaglie - An Enchanting Experience of Ceramics and Traditions

Welcome to the picturesque village of Grottaglie, known as "Li vurtàgghie" in the local dialect and Criptalium in Latin.

This charming place is famous not only for its artistic ceramics but also for the splendid vineyards that stretch along the slopes of the Murge hills, known as Monte Samuele Pizzuto. Located inland from Taranto, Grottaglie extends all the way to Matera in Basilicata.

Here, the territory is characterized by the presence of striking ravines, where numerous caves have been excavated.

The historic center of Grottaglie is entirely carved into the tuff stone, as evidenced by the Fantiano Caves, which now host an open-air theater where the annual International Music Mundi Festival takes place, dedicated to ethnic and folk music.

Grottaglie is part of the historical region of Salento, and its name derives from the Latin "Kriptalys," emphasizing the presence of caves (krypta) throughout much of the territory. The origins of Grottaglie can be traced back to settlements that have succeeded since the Paleolithic period, particularly in the areas of Riggio and Pezza Petrosa. According to some scholars, this could be the homeland of the father of Latin literature, Quintus Ennius, who was born in Rudiae in Apulia, one of the ancient fortified citadels (Rudiae and Mesocoro), destroyed during the barbarian invasions. The refugees then gave rise to the rock settlements from which Grottaglie and Villa Castelli later emerged. In the 9th century, a group of Jewish fugitives from Oria, among the few survivors of the city's large Jewish community, settled in the settlement around the hamlet of San Salvatore in the Fullonese Lama.

The most significant historical remains date back to the medieval period when the habit of living in caves became more widespread in the deep ravines. During this period, not only dwellings but also stairs, paths, and works for water channeling and drainage were built. An important witness of the Byzantine era in the territory of Grottaglie is the Riggio Ravine, which features high-quality Byzantine frescoes. Despite the Ionian area of Salento not being heavily influenced by Greek culture like the southern part, the frescoes bear Greek inscriptions. When the Goths and Saracens destroyed the villages in the territory, including Taranto itself, the caves provided refuge for the fugitives (960 AD). Thus, various inhabited centers were born, including Casale San Salvatore and Monti Cryptalis, which constitute the original nucleus of Grottaglie's historic center.
