The long story of a masseria and its owners
Masseria Spina Resort is one of the oldest historic residences of Puglia, with its long and fascinating history, which began during the sixteenth century.
The first settlements of Masseria Spina are among the most important examples of rupestrian civilization, developed between roughly the ninth and twelfth centuries in Puglia.
Traces of ancient foundations dating from the early medieval period and a small cemetery are visible, tangible sign of the presence, around the XII sec., of a fairly large community.
Numerous dynasties owned this amazing Masseria starting from Francisco de Chiantera in 1500 and its son Vito who took the name of “Spina” after the marriage with Lucrezia Spina.
After two important local families, starting from 1890 as a result of a wedding, Masseria Spina became the property of the old Meo-Evoli family who, in the late ’70s, made the masseria one of the first holiday farms of Puglia.
Nori Meo-Evoli, currently lives at Masseria Spina with her children, Marco and Sara D’Errico.
The entire family dedicates all its energies and skills to the masseria which is nowadays one of the most famous masseria in Puglia.
