Molfetta The earliest local signs of permanent habitation are at the Neolithic site of Pulo, one of the most important such sites in southern Italy. The origins of the city can be traced to a small fishing port; antique graves testify to a fisherman's village in the fourth century BC. The position of the future city offered a valid landing to the commerce of Roman Rubo. The first indication of a toponym on the coast between "Turenum" (Trani) and "Natiolum" (Giovinazzo) is in the "Itinerarium Provinciarum Antonini Augusti", edited from a third-century core. The place denominated "Respa" was probably a wrong transcript of the toponym "Melpha", referring to a small village of fishermen.

Molfetta At the beginning of the 11th century the Normans arrived, and the autonomy that the city preserved helped foster its development as both a commercial port with the east, and as port of embarcation for pilgrims heading to the Holy Land. The Crusades permitted the city to assume a wider importance. Among the many pilgrims was Conrad of Bavaria, who was so enamoured of the city that he became venerated as San Corrado, the protecting saint of Molfetta. During the Angevin dominion the city succeeded in remaining autonomous. However, the arrival of the Aragonese kingdom to Southern Italy, spurred turbulent struggles between French, Spanish and Italians. These wars provoked death and destruction in the whole south of Italy: the Sack of Molfetta at the hands of the French, 18–19 July 1529, was an episode that stalled the economic rebirth of the city.

Molfetta Cathedral The present cathedral was built by the Jesuits during the 17th century and dedicated to their founder, Saint Ignatius Loyola. Begun in 1610, it was not completed until 1744 with the construction of the façade, which bears the image of the saint. At the suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1767 the church was abandoned until 1785, when it was restored and extended and made into the new cathedral of the diocese of Molfetta, when the relics of the patron saint of the city, Saint Conrad of Bavaria (San Corrado), were translated to it from the previous cathedral (""duomo vecchio"" or the "old cathedral"), which is now the church of San Corrado.
