The Resort Hotel is located in the resort Masseria Donnaloia, where were found artifacts in clay ceramics reddish-brown, referable to the age of metals. The morphology of the area of Puglia, indeed, allowed very ancient settlements, in natural caves. In the second century d.c., Trajan was to want a faster route, comfortable and safe, the Via Appia, to reach Puglia and then Brindisi, to go to the East, from Rome 13/14 days, through a land of temperate climate from the sea. In Puglia, each approximately 10-15 Km, met the post stations, that were used to change horses, dining and accommodation of travelers. The road came in Puglia approached the sea of Barium (Bari), followed the coast and across the centers of Neapolis (Polignano) and I would say (Monopoli?) came to Gnathia (Egnazia).
Precisely 10 km of Egnazia, on a small hill overlooking the sea, it is layered in so many centuries, a settlement that, initially dug in the rock (Station sighting?), saw in later periods overlapping construction of different style. In this historic rural settlement of Puglia, was once the Resort Hotel Masseria Donnaloia.
