  • An aperitif in front of the Colossus, in the heart of city life she cheered. But that is a crossroads of ancient, before we did the Crusaders and pilgrims to the Holy Land, passed by here.

  • The bronze statue has a height of 4.50 meters and represents an unidentified Roman Emperor. Is located in the city centre next to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Is a meeting point of balettani.

  • 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.
