Rather square appareance
Feb 2020
This beatiful church was built between 1087 and 1197, during the Italo-Norman domination of Apulia.
The outside is rather square but the inside is a wonderful sequence of arches showing an unforgettable golden ceiling

Charming place
Jan 2020 • Couples
This place is very charming by being plain, not golden and sophisticated.
There you can find the God.
Must see in Bari!
