The Archaeological Museum of Egnazia is set outside the boundary walls of ancient Gnathia in the area of Messapian necropolis. It consists of eleven bright pavilions around two PATIO.
At present it includes three different exhibitions: the first one “DOCUMENTS OF BRONZE AGE” is about the ancient settlements along the Adriatic coast of Apulia, dating back to the Bronze Age. There were frequently commercial exchanges with Greeks.
The second exhibition is about Gnathia. It includes a beautiful marble head of Attis and a mosaic representing the Three Graces.
The third exhibition “Global archaeology”, realized in collaboration with the University of Bari, emphasizes the relationship between Archaeology and other scientific disciplines.
