This is a beautiful church dedicated to the Saint Nicola. I was there when they were celebrating Saint Nicola and the festivities were endless. Outside the church many locals were lined up to see the priest of the church and they had big screens in the plaza. Inside the church is beautiful. The church was built in early 1st century and has that old world catholic church feel. Definitely worth the visit.

Simbolo di Bari, tra le chiese più spettacolari d'Italia, la Basilica di San Nicola di Bari è un luogo di profonda spiritualità, legato all'affascinante storia di San Nicola di Myra, le cui spoglie furono qui traslate nell'undicesimo secolo (la chiesa fu edificata proprio a questo scopo, nel 1089). L'impianto della Basilica è romanico, e l'interno è completato da un soffitto ligneo dorato, con dipinti risalenti al Seicento; notevoli anche il ciborio (il baldacchino marmoreo che sovrasta l'altare) e la Cattedra di Elia, romanica.
San Nicola, oltre a essere venerato sia dai cattolici sia dagli ortodossi, ha anche dato vita... alla figura di Babbo Natale, alias Santa Claus ("Nicola", appunto)!

Costruita in stile Romanico tra il 1087 e il 1100, la basilica è dedicata a San Nicola di Myra, uno dei Santi più venerati tra gli Ortodossi. E' quindi una delle poche chiese frequentate da cristiani appartenenti a diverse confessioni.
