Veglie still has a strong trace of the Roman settlement, starting from the streets of the historic center characterized by the classic lattice with hinges and decumani.
Starting from the Porta Noa (Porta Nuova or Tramontana), originally built by Tristano di Chiaromonte in 1430, and walking along the folkloristic alleys of the historic center you come out in Umberto I Square where you can admire Palazzo Cacciatore (end of XVI century, Catalan architecture), the former Town Hall with the annexed Clock Tower (Fascist architecture), Palazzo Verrienti (end of ‘800) and the valuable monumental fountain of 1932. Walking down Via Vescovo Verrienti you can access in Largo San Vito where there is the ancient Hypogeum Oil Mill dug into the calcaretinal rocky bank (end of the 16th century) active until the early 20th century. Going back along via Dante you can find the Osanna’s Column, built at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
