Cellamare is a town in the province of Bari, whose name likely goes back to the middle ages when the archbishop of Bari, John V, after the destruction of Bari perpetrated by the Norman sovereign William the malo, took shelter in this territory, which since then changed its name from Cella Amoris to Cella Amaris to underline the exiles' pain.
Here some very important archeological leavings are preserved, including those of a menhir, a monolith going back thousands of years.
