THE CITY OF BARLETTA
Guided tours of the City of Barletta and the most significant monuments of Apulian history
It’s a walking tour of the famous Colossus, the Cantina della Disfida, the Cathedral and the Castle:
The Colossus Eraclio, called in dialect Aré, is an imposing bronze statue dating back to the Early Middle Ages, more than 5 metres high.
The Cantina Della Disfida, the place where the banquet was set up during which the offense that provoked the famous gunfight, known as the Disfida di Barletta, took place.
The Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, a rare Gothic example with a previous Romanesque layout.
The Castle, ancient fortress and prison, is the largest in Puglia; it preserves the statue of Frederick II.
It is located a few metres from the seafront and, besides an imposing moat surrounding the castle, in front of the main entrance there are the gardens of the city of Barletta.
And it is from here that we will begin our guided tour.
Everyone tells us that it is a historical visit, with clear references to fundamental events that have marked Apulia and southern Italy, it is true!
The City of Barletta is very interesting and for many people a surprise because you can see and touch the signs of history, the one lived and also the one told.
