We did not realy know what to expect when visiting this Cathedral.Set in the middle of town you can regognise it apart from the ogher buildings because on the protruding carved stone hanging off the front facia. Loads of decoration and the doors have some very interesting knockers.Inside it was no less ornate with lots of painting/murals and carving. Very beautiful and worth the visit.
A sweet little man approached us when we were outside and gave us a pamphlet on the church (in Italia).we thanked him and he just dissapeared!

Just look at this cathedral from the outside to have a first glance precise: the lower, rectangular, reminiscent of the low-set and massive temples, blind arches typical of the eastern Byzantine churches and the bow higher than the above 'entrance are the "figure" stylistic Eastern Roman Empire which had replaced Robert Guiscard only a few years earlier: the mixture of styles therefore between north and south europe, with the elite who takes over Norman and Byzantine.

The style thus anticipates what will be a century later, the Romanesque style of the emperor Frederick II of Swabia and Nicola Pisano (or, indeed, Nicholas of Apulia).Truly remarkable bronze doors at the main entrance, kept in an excellent and full of inscriptions and sculptures.

A curiosity is the difference between the right side and the left side, entrusted to two different builders, which evidently ignored each other during the construction :)

My review has intrigued you? well, it's time to go to T.roia, in Puglia and get inside the cathedral if you want to surprise you by columns of polished stone and ancient sculptures, and after the "inside tour" you can also visit the museum of the crypt, just un the right of the church.

Rich in the tradition of the Catholic Church and how it ties into the city Lucera. Breathtaking exhibits and beautiful stories!

The Duomo has recently been cleaned and the sculptures on the front are not only interesting but unique....animals with legs that hang over the front. An important Romanesque building not to be missed
