Cattedrale di Trani, Trani

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Church
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.

  • Imposing Cathedral. Exciting the upward momentum and the seaside location. The Interior has two floors: the ground floor has views of bows on the run, the top most high has a gallery with arches. Good restoration.

  • Began in 1099, the Church was built on the foundations of the Santa Maria della Scala. Later was built the Church of St. Mary, within which it was dug up a shrine to house the relics of Saint Leucio, purloined from Brindisi. The relics of St. Nicholas would be placed at the bottom of the Church. The decisive phase of the building was presumably to the 1200 when supplementation was considered achieved, except for the Bell Tower. This is presenting the columns of the Windows are increasingly directly proportional to the height

  • A very beautiful Romanesque-style Cathedral. Built the sea proximity impresses the Majesty. By entering you feel like stepping into the past. Pity that during the visit, the Bell Tower was being renovated. Recommended
