Review of Bitonto Cathedral

Bitonto Cathedral
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Church is old so it it cool, but it really isn't all that spectacular considering all the other churches in Italy. The archeological site underneath is very comprehensive and many people don't know it is there. If you like that sort of thing go check it out, otherwise the church is forgettable.

This Romanesque building from the late 11th century has early Christian church ruins in the lower level. There is a tile figure of a Gryphon (Griffin) dating back a couple thousand years. It was found while repairing a church floor. A gryphon is described as a mythical monster with head and wings of a bird and body of a feline and a symbol in Christian art of the double nature of Jesus Christ -- divine and human. There is a viewing area on the main floor level to look down on the Gryphon. But going down to the lower level allows a better view and prespective. The Ambo (pulpit) is of marble carved by Apulian stonecarvers.
