This is a 'hidden element' on the Piazza Mercantile, but you should not miss it. It is an historic landmark, where bad debtors used to be humiliated in public.

This pillar was erected in Bari by the Spanish Viceroy Pedro de Toledo in the middle of the XVI century. To take and not to give was a good tradition in Puglia. Debtors to banks or individuals were chained to a shameful column. Lion is located here according to the legend from the XII century and had the function of a talisman for the city, to protect it from misfortunes.

Read now on TripAdvisor what the column is about. Almost did not notice it, and it's actually a pretty cool thing. Could use an information plaque.

Found in one corner at the far end of Piazza Mercantile. The age of the column and lion are evident from the worn surfaces. People seem to climb on the lion's back to take selfies and generally fool around. Had to wait for a while to get a photo of the debtor's column which is up a couple of steps.

Dating back to 16th century, this column - accompanied by a figure of a lion - was a place where insolvent debtors used to be exposed for punishment by public humiliation.
