Bari Cathedral

Cattedrale di Bari has undergone so many changes that it is no longer possible to determine when the building was constructed. The primitive church was built in 1034 after the Bishop of Bisanzio had had an ancient church knocked down that was dedicated to Santa Maria. Completed around 1060, it was partially destroyed in 1156 by Guglielmo ill Malo, who razed the whole city of Bari to the ground. In 1166, it was rebuilt by the Archbishop Rainaldo. The facade is decorated with bears, horses, donkeys and a small bearded gnome who seems to have come from a forest in the North. Inside the crypt, on the altar, are the remains of San Sabino (to whom the church is dedicated).

Basilica di San Nicola

Bari's Basilica of San Nicola was founded in 1087 by the Benedictine Abbott Elia as a place to hold the relics of the saint who was caught at Myra by Barese seamen. The basilica has three naves with columns that are interrupted by the presence of pillars, a free transept, a crypt with an oratory, and apses that are surrounded by a wall that covers the bell towers. On the northern wall is the 'Gate of the Lions,' and there is a central ornate portal. Inside the church, which is also called the 'Cathedral of Elia,' is an exceptional bishop seat made from a single block of marble, which dates to the middle of the 12th Century and depicts ferocious lionesses. The 17th-century ceiling is golden and painted with the stories of San Nicola - the work of the master Carol Rosa.

Castello Normanno-Svevo

The original nucleus of this castle, which is the current quadrangular belt with angular towers, dates from the Norman-Swabian era. During the destruction of Bari in 1156 by Guglielmo ill Malo, the castle suffered notable damage. Around 1233, Federico II restored it and built a monumental portal and a portico along the perimeter of the internal courtyard. Later, in the 16th Century, walls were built on three sides of the building, transforming it into an organic, harmonious construction worthy of the court of Isabella of Aragon and Bona Sforza.

Museo Teatro Margherita

Established in 1914, Museo Teatro Margherita is a beautiful museum that is located by the Adriatic Sea. Overlooking the port, the museum sits on stilts and is surrounded by water. Until the year 1979, this museum was used as a theater. Built in Art Nouveau style, it is known to showcase artworks by the renowned Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. They also offer space to host interesting photography exhibitions.
