  • The façade of the square does not make the idea of the great nave inside. To underline the main portal. Pretty square.

  • One of the most beautiful squares in Italy to visit both during daytime and evening hours. The show is guaranteed! Recommend for anyone who likes to photograph not to miss this beautiful square.

  • The Cathedral of Lucera was built by Charles II of Anjou, after the expulsion of the Saracens from the city, Angevin Gothic style architecture. Asymmetric brick façade with a rose window above and, on the right side of the quadrilateral-shaped tower topped by a thin belfry. The simplicity of the exterior is made elegant by the contrast of white marble elements, which highlight the silhouettes of the Lancet window of the Tower, Lancet Windows, central portal, with beautiful bas-reliefs, dua side doors, the cusp of the Bell Tower and the slender tower that is on the left side. The Interior has a Latin cross, with beautiful beamed ceiling supported by arches that rest on elegant pillars, preserves the high altar, carved from the cafeteria of Frederick II, a wooden statue, of the 14th century, of the Madonna and child, patron saint of the city. the Baptistry and the 15th-century ciborium in the right nave pulpit carved from a funerary monument of the 16th century beautiful frescoes of the XVII century located in the lateral apses and the central work of Belisario Corenzio, depicting several Martyrs of Saints and scenes from the life of Jesus and Mary and the Dormition and the assumption of the Virgin. Also worth seeing are the chapel Gab with the remains of blessed Augustine Casotti, Bishop of the city and laa fine wooden crucifix Chapel G 1300.
