Traces of prehistoric and even earlier man can be found.

The area was first settled as a Greek establishment as the city of Gnatia, Monopoli being a smaller outer village known as Dyria, of Peucetian origins.

After the destruction of Gnatia by the Ostrogoth King Totila in 545, its inhabitants fled to Monopoli, from which it derives its name as "only city".

In the following centuries the area would be controlled by the Byzantines, Normans and Hohenstaufen, and was a starting point for naval Crusades expeditions.
