Exploring old Venusia, attention is caught by the fascinating Complex of the SS. Trinità (Holy Trinity).

It is one of the biggest and most valuable monuments in the South of Italy. It was built on a previous pagan temple, dedicated to Imene, goddess of weddings.

The peculiar story connected to its building makes it a unique work.

It was meant to be formed by two churches, an old one and a new one, which should probably take the place of the former; the new one was though never completed, this is the reason why it is famous as the ‘Incompiuta’ (Unfinished).

The old church dates back to the V-VI centuries. It has a nave and two aisles covered by round arches, a transept, an apse and an ambulatory with mosaics floor.

Just beside there is the ‘new church’: without any cover at all, it stands in contrast between open space and enclosed space, light and shade, creating a spectacular effect of great fascination.
