Villa Dorica is a masterpiece of Neo-Renaissance or Palladian Style, a stream of Neoclassicism. Built and owned by the same family since the mid 1800s, this beautiful palazzo is listed by Italy’s Ministry of Arts and Culture as “a protected building of national and cultural interest”, and represents one of the most prestigious and architecturally relevant examples of residential construction in Puglia.
The entrance is through an imposing door that leads into a stately Grand Hall, where until World War II carriages stopped for passengers to alight and then proceeded to the rear buildings and stables. A majestic staircase takes you from the Grand Hall to the piano nobile, or first floor, where the family resided. These beautifully appointed luxury rooms are now available for holiday rentals.
