I loved the original floor mosaics which are in excellent condition. There is also a chapel on the right-hand side of the main altar that is worth looking at. The ceiling painting is incredible, and the walls and altar in that chapel are ornate.

We have visited sooooo many churches during our years in Europe. Nevertheless, the side back chapel on the right side is a rare experience. The intricate designs with outstandingly colorful marbles is unique and absolutely worthwhile to observe. If you are anywhere near Taranto, be...More

Small but beautiful chapel and the paintings in the Internal Duomo are a beauty. An attraction you can't leave Taranto without visiting.
