A pilgrimage destination for Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians, Basilica San Nicola was constructed in the 11th and 12th centuries. The origins of the basilica are steeped in legend--one is that St. Nicolas passed by Bari on his way to Rome and declared that it would be his final resting place. Today, the structure houses one of the most notable Romanesque sculptural works in southern Italy: a bishop's throne. Walk over mosaic pathways and between the two vast towers that give the church the appearance of a castle. It actually was used as a castle on four separate occasions.

Basilica San Nicola Reviews
한적한 시골마을 이예요. 바리에서 알타무라 지나 조금 더 들어가는 그라비나 인 풀리아는 기원전 6~700년 전에 바위에 동굴을 파서 생활한 유적이 있는 곳이예요. 마을 자체가 오래된 건물들에 한적하고 조용한 동네입니다. 여기저기 자판기 편의점에서 물이나 간단한 초코바 정도는 구매 가능해요. 아이들은 딱히 할게 없어서 심심할 거예요. more »It's a secluded countrytown. A little further from Bari to Altamura, Gravin puglia is home to the ruins of a cave that was dug into a rock from 6-700 BC. The village itself is quiet and quiet with old buildings. There are vending machines all over the place, so you can buy water or a simple chocolate bar at a convenience store. The kids will be bored because they don't have anything to do.

Very nice and old place situated in lovely area. Old walls, wooden roof, antic paints- all this things look amazing. Downstairs crypt was pretty interesting. It's also place where is Queen Bona coffin. Near the church is very beautiful seaside. I can recommend to visit this place.
This is wonderful monument of Romanesque architecture and medieval history of XII century. The same time that Basilica is the Place of Religious Christian pilgrimage because in the crypt you are going to find the Holy Relics of Saint Nicholas. North portal decorated with the tympanum where you can see a lot of mounted and dismounted Norman Knights of XII century. That basilica is another trace of Norman culture and architecture in South Italy. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
