Trani

Trani lies in the province of Bari and overlooks the Adriatic Sea just next to a small bay where a well-sheltered sea port has been built. It is one of the most well-equipped yachting ports on the southern Adriatic coast, and for a long time it has been an important landmark for the national and international sport sailing.

The original core of Trani presents a fishbone urban structure, a typical Norman one, which develops itself by following the port inlet. Houses and wonderful monuments date back to the Swabian period. They witness a noble past.

Trani offers a wide range of historical and particular churches, but the ancient Cathedral might be your ideal setting. It is one of the best Romanesque style buildings of Apulia, the result of a superimposing of three buildings which were built on the same spot. A double flight of stairs precedes the Cathedral, flanked by a thirteenth-century church tower. The façade is decorated by white-rose stones and by a beautiful rose window. A notable bronze portal gives access to the church. The interior is simple but full of charm.
