The ancient town of Giovinazzo, which stands on a promontory dominating the sea, was fortified on the XV century. It was a small centre during the Roman rule, called it Natolium, and probably built on the ruins of the Peucete Netium. Later it became a flourishing commercial centre.
The town has many buildings of great historical interest such the XII century Cathedral, which overlooks the sea, the Palazzo Ducale, located inside Piazza del Duomo, the Palazzo Saraceno and the Church of Spirito Santo.
