THINGS TO DO IN BARI
Bari is filled with historical sights and cultural events. It is always offering a very rich program of events.
We wish to recommend some historical sights:
A few steps from the castle, right at the entrance to Bari's old town, the metropolitan cathedral of St. Sabinus is an historical episcopal see whose firm and harmonious lines reflect the architecture of the nearby Basilica of St. Nicholas. Built in the 13th century, it represents an extraordinary example of Apulian Romanesque architecture, in whose basement are kept precious archaeological finds, such as the ruins of a civic building of Roman age, a three-nave early christian basilica and a small Byzantine church.
The most prestigious cultural building in Bari and Puglia, the Teatro Petruzzelli is Italy’s fourth biggest theatre and the largest private theatre in Europe. Placed on Corso Cavour, in the heart of the city, it's not far from the Palazzo dell’Acquedotto Pugliese (Apulian Aqueduct). Inaugurated in 1903, it was destroyed by an arson attack in 1991 and reconstructed in 2009, acquiring again its former splendour.
The building's Umbertino style, a typical Italian style of the late 19th century, fits harmoniously with the rest of the Murat district, the newer part of town. The Fondazione Lirico Sinfonica Petruzzelli oversees the rich artistic program of the theatre, which can seat up to 1,500 spectators.
