The Masseria has some relevant historical background. It was a Basilian Convent in the period (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and later became the hunting residence of the Bishop of Taranto, Baron of Grottaglie in the mid 1700s.
It became a Masseria around the middle of 1800 when it was purchased by the Marquis D'Ajala Valva dalla Chiesa, who left the property to the Knights of the Order of Malta that have, later in 1998, sold it to a well-known architect from Puglia, the current owner.
