Cattedrale di Trani, Trani

Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • Trani has the best sited and most beautiful Cathedral in Italy. The bell tower is currently being worked on, and I want to go back and enjoy this Cathedral again, some day soon.  more »
  • The cathedral in Trani is excellent. There are original wall paintings, a crypt with many columns and a basilica that is enormous and contains the original metal door. It is definitely worth a visit.  more »
