Cattedrale di Trani, Trani

4.8
#1 of 64 in Things to do in Province of Barletta-Andria-Trani
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.

    I did not expect to find a cathedral so beautiful and interesting, a few steps from the sea. The entry in the lower basilica does not comprehend the greatness of the place. Really nice

    The Cathedral of Trani was a great find. A church steeped in history and it's beautiful to see. Sunset is a show.
