    I first saw this beautiful statue when I was a child, and I was not even at his knee. Now I brought my son, who is the same age as me then ... It's great grand children and Heraclius is even bigger. Too bad it's on a busy road, which gives less importance. The good side is that you can find a stone's throw from the giant and the medieval church behind him.

    For goodness sake the monument is historical and I must admit that from an aesthetic point of view is admirable, but stay on the street reduces the charm

    Makes a certain effect see the years pass but find the statue of Heraclius always there ready to strike fear for the Viewer. I like a good man of Barletta everytime I watch her with pleasure and pride is the symbol of our city and proud of it, excellent bronze sculpture with some signs of the time but overall estate real, legend has it that sitting on the beach he put to flight the invaders that reached from the sea just crying and ask them the reason of tears has responded I don't fight because they are the smallest , whereupon the invaders affrighted fled. This is the legend but the truth is that Heraclius is always with us

  • 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.
