Masseria San Felice: the history
The beautiful Masseria San Felice is located in Bisceglie, in the province of Bari. It is an ancient fortified residence dating back to the 17th century, surrounded by a lush forest of centuries-old olive trees. This area was already known in earlier times as a place of worship dedicated to Saint Felix the Martyr Pope. The masseria was in fact built along a route of ancient medieval churches, dating back as far as the 6th century.
According to 16th-century sources, Masseria San Felice was owned by Knight Posa of Bisceglie, a member of the Order of St Stephen Pope. In the 17th century, the adjacent manor house was built, a product of baronial colonisation. The mansion has been renovated and enlarged several times over the years, reaching its current size. Masseria San Felice was then purchased by the Savasta family, who entrusted its management to an external company. Masseria San Felice currently houses accommodation and is open for exclusive receptions. It also includes a renowned restaurant, known for its traditional and genuine cuisine.
