Storia comune di Bisceglie provincia di Barletta-Andria-Trani

According to some sources the name comes from “vigiliae” that means “sentry” referring to its position facing the Adriatic sea as a lookout. But reliable documents tell that the name comes from the dialect word “vescegghie” referring to a kind of oak planted in that area. The dolmens are the proof that the territory was inhabited since the prehistory. After the Roman Empire’s collapse it followed the ups and downs of Apulia’s history: Byzantines, Normans, Anjous (the most blooming moment), Aragoneses, Bourbouns until the Unification of Italy. Nowadays Bisceglie is a brisk farming and fishing centre.
