That is the short answer ;) The longer answer is that particularly in a mediaeval setting you would have to see how the author uses the word. He could mean something like a while ago, some time ago, even maybe a long time ago. Here though I think it is formerly ;)

I believe `formerly` sits well with the overall meaning of the phrase. The description matches with Bari, and the text continues telling that the traveller goes from Bari to Taranto.
