Just next to the sea, Romanesque Cattedrale di Trani was constructed from local Tufa limestone, which gives the structure its light pink, almost white color. Evidence of the first house of worship on this spot goes back to the fourth century, though the church as we see it now was begun in 1099. Simple in style, it remains imposingly beautiful inside and out. Climb the bell tower, added between 1230 and 1239, for views of the sea and city below, or descend into the crypt, which remains just as it was built almost 1,000 years ago.

  • Beautiful Basilica on a large square by the sea with great view to nearby castle. We parked easily at the nearby port where fresh fish were being sold straight off the back of the boats. Under restoration when we were there, the exterior nearly complete and stunning to look at with onlt a small rear section still behind scaffolding. Only the crypt of interior open, but fun to visit. In the crypt are the relics of St. Nicholas the wanderer, not themore famous St Nick. Basilica from 1100, built over a church from 400AD.
  • It was a visit from abroad, I did not enter the church, it is a beautiful area, a file of interest in the architecture of the area and the church that the baa was made of local materials and local stone, so it is very special and a reference to the ancient Italian organic architecture
  • You can pay 5€ to take the stairs up to the top of the Bell tower. The view from the top is pretty nice. The bells started ringing when we were 2 meters away from them, so be careful!
  • The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, sometimes referred to as Santo Nicola Pellegrino, is the main place of Catholic worship in the city of Trani, in Puglia, the mother church of the Archdiocese of Trani-Barletta-Bisceglie and, since 1960, a minor basilica. [ 1] It is an example of Apulian Romanesque architecture. Its construction is linked to the events of San Nicola Pellegrino, dating back to the era of Norman domination.
  • In the picturesque coastal town of Trani in the south of Italy, this cathedral stands out, the towering structure with its high bell tower is located directly on the water and is therefore the symbol of the city., It is an imposing structure that actually consisted of two churches.
