  • Heraclius a colossus who triumphs in the Centre of barletta a bronze statue of esemblare surely to envy

  • I was often in Barletta, but I never actually realised the presence of this statue, mighty and colossal. A pleasant surprise, which shows that we are inattentive as travelers. Watch really is a skill that we must truly cultivate,. A very scenic statue for a town always pleasant to visit.

  • Nothing special really. Though the church behind the statue is very nice inside.
  • Amazingly tall at 16ft/5m+ the statue made in the IV century depicts a Roman emperor.
  • Probably a statue of an emperor of the roman eastern empire, it's traditionally called Eraclio. Do not forget to look under the colossus' skirt, for good luck :)
  • Nice :O
  • Almost at the entrance to the old town of Barletta there's this immense statue of an emperor lived several centuries ago, although to date no word yet on who it was he. In any case a monument really neat to see, perhaps more than three metres high. To read the label on the side.
