“In the enchanted village
Clinging on the ravine,
The earliest legends
Skim the roofs with the wings of the hawks
the atavistic guardian
Of one case without time..!”
Tursi is..
an ancient village built around
its castle during the V century of
Cristian era.
Tursi,as a whole, is distributed like
a white sugar topping
on a dripping hazelnut ice cream.
It feels like climing over the steep
hill. Indeed,
a typical feature of Tursi
landscape are the tuff columns
form the boundaries of the ancient
almost totally abandoned
What you will
immediately love of Tursi is its
initial reluctance to show its
beauty, that suddenly comes out
you turn the corner: a lot of
unexpected minarets make you
wonder: “Where am I”. Smells
sounds can take you to “The
Arabian nights”.
Another mark of Tursi saracenic
origins is its ancient name,
Rabatana, that in Arabic means
camp, the equivalent of the latin
word castra (and the
celtic burg), the same of the
Morocco capital, Rabat.
Plunged in asperities,
beautiful agrarian landscape
surrounds Tursi from the
northen windy
hills to the fluorishing valley
at South. Orange tree
plantations spring everywhere
and staccia
orange variety is the symbol
of local agriculture.
Hospitality and courtesy
characterize people living in
in some cases the proverb“l
dej u dict e s piddjen u vrazz”
becomes true; so it will be
better not to socialize too
The ancient canonic palace belongs to Popia
family who have called it “Palazzo dei Poeti”.
It was built at the feet of the castle, as one
the several tunnels, in the 5th century it was
the place where the guards lived as well as a
safe exit for the lord of the Castel to
escape from. The tunnel passing under the big
hall was linked to the church in Rabatana
The palace was enlarged in 1600. it had two
levels as it is possible to notice looking at the
façade in front of the church. This façade was
completely built with stones and bricks and
featured by a series of vaulted arches typical
of this period. The third floor was built in
1834, as attested by important epitaphs, and
it was the residence of the lord.
The storage tank discovered was probably
linked to other tanks in the Rabatana quarter
which made a kind of water system.
The restaurant
The interiors of the hall, cosy and
elegant, have maintained the original
colours; the stone and brick barrel
vaulted, the series of arches and the
wooden-girder ceiling make the
atmosphere suitable for each event.
The cuisine
Good chefs make the past
cuisine revive, reinterpreting
old recipes; they innovate and
refine traditional dishes in a
continuous search of new
The rooms
Accurately furnished, the hotel
develops on two floors; on the
first floor there are its hall and a
big and relaxing terrace with a
gorgeous view. All the rooms have
a wonderful view and the suites,
with big fireplaces, show a refined
style and harmony between space
and thoughts.
The Tavern & The conference room
Linked to the building, the tavern is a place where it is possible to listen to good
music and taste the good wines made by the owners of the Palazzo dei Poeti. The
conference room is as a link in the building. It is a modern room within there is
balance between the ancient style and the modern technologies.
