The church is relatively new when compared to the nearby Chiesa dei Santi Medici. Chiesa Sant’ Antonio started welcoming the public to be their place of worship in 1927.

After several times of turning around and backtracking, we found Chiesa Sant’ Antonio up on Via Monte Michele, a street in town that is picturesque dotted with hordes of commercial Trulli shops. The building itself is beautiful from its outside, but the inside? There is nothing much to write about back home. Glad, access to the church is free!

Few notable works of embellishments are:

The base is a Greek cross, on which stands a 21.50 m high conical dome, built with traditional trullo technique.

The bell tower emerges from the perimeter and rises alone.

The majestic Christ in the Cross that dominates the apse of the church.

The tufa altar.

And the bronze book sculpture.

I believe this is a Protestant church.
