Palazzo Ammazzalorsa is a prestigious seventeenth-century building, located at 12 Via Trieste, in the historic heart of Bisceglie, a charming urban center north of Bari. Fairly property of the Vetrère agricultural company, the palace stands imposingly on the Aragonese walls of the 15th century from which it dominates the ancient port of the town. The palace consists of two levels, divided by a marcapiano frame.
The facade presents a rustic, finely crafted ashlar masonry at the first level, and a tufa stone at the second level; access is allowed through a very linear portal, surmounted by the only balcony with a stone balustrade. Palazzo Ammazzalorsa has been part of I Luoghi del Cuore of the FAI – Fondo per l’ambiente italiano for several years.
