Otranto, Martyr’s cathedral.

with reliquaries behind the high altar containing the 800 skulls from the severed heads of Puglian Catholics martyred by Ottoman soldiery in the year of Our Lord 1480. They are commemorated in the Martyrology on August 14.

I went to visit the city last week, Otranto is the most eastern town in Italy
