Convento di Santa Maria di Costantinopoli
The interior of Convento di Santa Maria di Costantinopoli is nothing like to traditional Masserie and hotels you have seen in Puglia before. ll Convento was a 15th-century Franciscan monastery, a complete ruin when the late Lord Alistair McAlpine and his wife Athena bought the property. They lovingly restored it and furnished it with collections brought back from their distant exotic travels. Every corner of the stunning historical building is filled with art from all over the world. Il Convento has a beautiful swimming pool, great cuisine with delicious creations by chef Pierluigi, a rooftop garden with a yoga room and many more beautiful places to completely unwind.
