Cathedral of Bisceglie

Overview

Located in the centre of the old city, this basilica dates back to a period between the 11th and 13th centuries. It underwent extensive modifications following an earthquake in the 18th century. Extensive restoration work has returned the interior to its original Romanesque aspect. It has a nave, two aisles with leaning semi-columns, trussed roofing, a matroneum with rare triple-mullioned windows and a beautiful carved wooden choir. On the façade there are Romanesque elements (including the remarkable portal, with mullioned and single windows) and Baroque influences such as the large window. Nearby is the bishop's palace, which houses the Diocesan Museum, a collection of paintings, silverwork, wooden and stone sculptures from different eras.
