  • The Colossus of Barletta called Rodallo by locals, Heraclius, is a bronze over 5 meters high was found at sea on the routes of ships leaving from the port for that of the Holy land. Only one of its kind, definitely a tourist attraction.

  • A bronze statue of almost five metres is located opposite the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It is very beautiful and impressive buildings dating to the fifth century. Definitely be photographed during your walk in the historic centre of Barletta.

  • 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.
