Conversano

Three and a half miles away, Conversano is the ancient and noble town of the Counts of Acquaviva of Aragon. But long before, during the iron age, the Japigie and Peucezie peoples encircled the highest point of the hill with the still in part remaining megalithic walls thus founding the town of Norba.
Rich and prosperous for centuries, Norba disappeared with the incursions of the barbarians who swept down through Italy following the destruction of the Roman empire. It was then reborn under the name of 'Casale Cupersanem' in the 10th century AC. The Normans and the Aragonese left their mark on the rest of its history.
