Fragments of history, whose remains are still found in the city road system, following the interesting routes we suggest, to know the original system of fortification of the ancient Brindisi, to admire the dignified refinement of its buildings, the imposing residences of Knights Templars, the magnificence of its churches, and at last, to discover the authentic essence of the town, called by Frederick II “filia solis” (sun’s daughter) for the particular Mediterranean light of this extraordinary outpost towards the East.
Throughout history, Brindisi always played the role of “the gate of East”, as the only great port in the south-center part of Adriatic Sea, with the function of main connection with Greece and the Asian World.
The name of the city, according to legend, comes from “Brento”, the son of Hercules of the VIII century b.C.; according to the Messapian term ‘brunda’ or ‘brendon’, which means deer head, comes from the shape of its inner port. Even today, the deer, together with the terminal columns of Via Appia, are the symbols of the city coat of arms of Brindisi.
