  • Please Google "Basilica San Nicola" before you visit this place, it's an interesting e perience after you know its history and other details... other than that, common architecture.
  • Just do not miss it. This basilica is the most important place in Bari and an holy place for both Catholics and Orthodox pilgrims. In the crypt you can see the Saint's grave.
  • Very nice ceiling, worth visiting place.

  • Ancient basilica. The crypt is where St. Nicholas' remains are. Every year they exude oil which is in turn placed in beautifully painted bottles and sold in the gift shop.
