If you are visiting Bari do not miss seeing this cathedral. Located in the Old Town section near the Basilica of St. Nicholas in the heart of the city, the surrounding streets make a lovely stroll through an ancient area. The cathedral is not particularly ornate nor bright in color but it is tasteful, spacious, well-kept, and a splendid structure well worth the stop.

Not as ornate as many Catholic churches, it has some interesting Roman architecture. The crypt is very interesting. There is not much difference inside than in the Basilica di San Nicola.
In one of these two, they get oil from the body of Saint Nick and sell it in the gift shop.

Bari is a pleasant town and worth taking the time to look around. The cathedral is not world class, but is well worth a visit.

This Cathedral is filled with centuries of history. The standing building is beautiful - take time to walk the whole thing, then go down stairs. For just a couple of Euros you can go through the terrifically excavated crypt and see graves and floors from 1100! Bari is a neat town worth exploring and enjoying. This is the best of the sites.

If you think the Basilica di San Nicola fulfills your curiosity for churches and Romanesque architecture think again.
The Cathedral is only a few minutes walk from St. Nicholas and you get there while enjoying the beautiful narrow streets of the old town and the scores of ladies handmaking pasta ( mainly orecchiette). The Cathedral architecture is even older and simpler than St. Nicholas but equally breathtaking.
Don't miss the recently (2009) open to the public archeological site beneath the crypt. It is called Succorpo and it's simply amazing as you walk on glass to be able to admire all the mosaics and findings. Entrance is not free but it is money well spent.
