  • Huge statue which is located near the basilica of the Holy Sepulchre of Barletta! They say he was found at the bottom of the sea, but some studies have disproved this hypothesis because there are signs that the statue was at sea! Major attraction of Barletta well worth a visit as it is on a main road in Barletta where there are many bars and is very close to the historic center!

  • Beautiful and charming to see the giant statue symbol of Barletta. Located close to the historical centre one of the most appreciated in the city.

  • It is a bronze statue of historical significance for the city of Barletta, known as Colossus or statue of Heraclius. Behind it stands the Church of the Holy Sepulchre

  • Nothing special really. Though the church behind the statue is very nice inside.
  • Excellent place very vibrant
  • 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
