  • You could also do without visiting it, tantissi boys playing at his feet and climbing everywhere.

  • If you must visit in Barletta the Colossus that is the symbol of the city. It's a statue found at sea with a story behind it ... ... ... ... ...

  • Located in the Centre outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the bronze statue of Heraclius, fine workmanship, stands majestically on passers-by with stern look. See it from the base: you will feel very small!

  • 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.
