The main nucleus ofMasseria San Domenicodates back to the fifteenth century and consists of a watchtower belonging to the Knights of Malta who had their main base in Puglia in the nearby port of S. Stefano. The Tower still intact with its manholes and flues stands proud of its historic role in the center of the residential area that gradually was transforming until the eighteenth century becoming one of the most important fortified farms in the area.
