It is worth to visit, in the old part of Bari. It has a very nice crypt too. It is quite different from the Basilicas I have been. I have liked very much the ceiling. The arches in the middle are strange, but different. ;)

Quiet, calm, cool. Great architecture in side street of Bari. No entrance fee can get crowded but worth the wait.

Amazing Bizantine-Romanic style. Never saw anything like it! (and we've got our Romanic, in Spain, trust me!)

This is one of the most wonderful churches in the world. It was build in 1100 and there is the tomb of st. nicolas thai is te papa noel. The stones, the paintings, the whole treasure is wonderful. You cannot miss it.

Lovely Basilica by the sea. Modest and grounded building. Decadent, golden ceiling. No change. Good crypt.

A bit disappointing on the inside. Best part is to walk around the old town and see how it is still an active community .
