Nice sculpture of St. Nicholas near the church; the relics of Saint Nicholas ( the Christmas Father for the children) is burried in Sant Nicholas Basilica, and his relics were stolen in the 11 century from Turkey, where his sarcophage is to admire, but empty.

Can be found in one corner of the square in front of the famous St Nicholas Cathedral. Good to see and admire but that's about it.

We were walking around the old city, beautiful day but we were in such a hurry to get to see everything we did not go in to see his Tomb.

I cant say too much, since its just a statue. But its right outside the Basilica and super close to the old town of Bari. Snap a photo and enjoy the vacation!
