  • Cam across this imposing statue whilst out for a walk. It's 4 meters high, but they dont know who it is. Good photo opportunity.  more »
  • Interesting fate of this statue of a Roman emperor. It was excavated in Ravenna in the 13th century and transported to Barletta for some reason.  more »
  • obviously, it's the one of most important monument in the city, but the position does not enhance the statue. Anyway, it's easy to find it because it's on the street.  more »

  • 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
  • Bronze colossus, about 5 metres. Symbol of the city of Barletta. Dates from about 1600 years ago. Invaluable. Located downtown near the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre.
