This church is a little bit beige compared to other much more ornate churches but it does have a rather impressive front door.

Magnificent basilica, built in 1882 by architect Antonio Curri on the foundations of a 12th century chapel. I noted that the cathedral/basilica location bears his name. Cosmas and Damian were third century Arabian-born twin brothers who embraced Christianity and practised medicine and surgery without a fee. This led them to be known as the holy unmercenaries, the Anargyroi (without silver). They reputedly cured blindness, fever, paralysis and reportedly expelled a breast serpent. Nothing is known of their lives except that they suffered martyrdom in Syria.
The exterior is somewhat plain with its two bell towers, connected by a balustrade and a statue of Pope John Paul II. The interior is a single nave, an impressive altar, magnificent artwork on its ceiling and side chapels. Wooden statutes of brothers Cosma and Damiano are significantly placed. As well there are frescoes, stunning artwork and various historical pieces.

One would almost forget, but there is a beautiful Basilica too you can visit, not far from the trulli area. It is sitauted in the busy part of the town where ther is, of course, a lot of traffic because of the many tourists.

The basilica and the area around is the lest visited part of the city on the opposite of Trulli houses hill, but still with some charm. Nice architecture to admire even the interior is not stunning as other Puglia churches. The basilica dominates the city, entrance free. I preferred this area as less people strolled around.

This is not the main reason for people to come to Alberobello but, still, it worth a short visit. As for the most of the Italian churches, the entrance is free.

Balanced exterior with twin towers. Simply beautiful inside too. We sat a while in the tranquillity, appreciating the statues, alter, frescoes and calmness. Well worth the effort to visit..

This beautiful church dominates the central area of the beautiful town. Grab a coffee and appreciate the lovely architecture then take a wander up to the building to get a sense of the place.

This is a very non-descript church in a country that is renowned for its ornate buildings. I wasn’t over impressed with it

In 1635 a small church was built with a painting on the altar of Madonna between Saints Cosmas and Damian. The present Basilica was constructed in 1882 in the same spot as the 1635 chapel. The entry portal is 17 steps above street level and topped with a lunette of Christ on the cross-surrounded by 6 saints. The entry portal is flanked by two bell towers, which are connected by a balustrade. The interior is a single nave design with barrel roofed side chapels. There are two wooden statues of Cosma and Damiano from the 18th century.

Rich in simplistic beauty. Nice architecture on the outside. Being a relatively small community, the interior is not overly ornate. I liked the statues of Cosma and Damiano (maybe because I’m partial to those shades of blue and green), whom after the Basilica was named to honour. Being a house of God, I’ll rate it as Excellent.
