  • considering all the beautiful churches of the province, it is not perhaps the most beautiful in assoluto...ma is still the city's Cathedral.

  • Located in the heart of Foggia, in a pedestrian area, it is possible to appreciate the long process of restoration that returned the city a piece of its history. The structure is in Romanesque style and partly a result of repeated Baroque restorations and/or modifications for expansions that have taken place over the centuries, especially after the earthquake of 1731, reflecting the different cultural influences that this city has for Gothic or medieval Norman-Byzantine-from. The Interior is in Baroque style that consists of a single nave with Latin cross. The main aisle on both sides is divided into four zones; in between there are two arches on tall pillars as to form two chapels and the areas of the four extremities have each two columns, collected in the corners, on which rests the architrave. At the center of the apse, aligned with the main entrance, there is the high altar, with the sides of the Choir chapels and Crocifisso.Il's Crucifix is an artwork designed and followed in its implementation by the preacher milanese Pietro Frasa, dead young in Foggia. It is said that in 1933, there was a singular incident: the crucifix was carried in procession through the streets of the city and during the sermon of that Father Leandro Montini, would have emitted sparks several times by the stigmata of the statue within a quarter of an hour. The Crucifix has been restored in 1963.

  • Neglected for a long time, has regained its beauty thanks to the restoration of a few years ago. Particularly striking at night the façade of great value. Inside, in the chapel on the right, to see a statue of Christ dying on the cross, striking for very realistic representation.
