Lonely Planet review
After the Romans, the next big event to hit Brindisi was the Crusades during the 12th and 13th centuries. The Porta dei Cavalieri Templari, an exotic-looking portico with pointy arches, is all that remains of the Knights Templar's main church. It stands beside the cathedral in the heart of the small historic quarter.
