Creep to the crypt
Oct 2020 • Couples
The splurge of baroque stylings has been reserved for the crypt in this otherwise unadorned and uncluttered church. This is resplendent with highly decorated arches and has two relinqueries. The principal one contains some mummified remains. Supposedly these are of Sant Colombia of Sens. A third century martyr of Spanish origin and venerated largely France. Somehow reunited with her head she reclines rather uncomfortably in a spangly dress and fetching beach sandals.

BUILT DURING 12th CENTURY
Feb 2020
The Cattedrale di San Sabino is inside the old town and just about 2' walk from the Norman Swabian Castle.
The building reminds the one of Basilica St. Nicholas.
The façade is simple three baroque portals dating back to 11th century

Beautiful basilica

Imposing architecture and interior, made in white limestone and located in the old town. Definitely worth a visit.

We wanted to see the cathedral of Bari. So we walked around the quaint streets of the old city following our GPS. We had to ask for directions to it’s entrance. This is a 12th- to 13th-century Romanesque cathedral. It was very dim in the sanctuary, relatively bare, with almost no frescoes on the side walls.

Wonderful cathedral
Jul 2019
Less known than Basilica San Nicola, the San Sabino cathedral is a great example of Puglia Romanesque architecture. This church was built between the 12th and 13th century and its facade is in shining limestone decorated with little arches.
The interior with three naves and two-level arches looks solemn and harmonious decorated with sculptured elements in the limestone.

Worth the visit
Sep 2019
The cathedral suffers from the fact that the best known church in Bari is the basilica of Saint Nicholas. Still, the cathedral is basically as old as the other church and worth a visit. In any case, the two churches are very close to each other.
