Home / TOWNS / Barletta

Theater of the historic Disfida (chivalrous challenge) between Italian and French knights, Barletta is the provincial capital with Andria and Trani.

Recognized as a City of Art, Barletta offers an important heritage, with elegant architecture and precious museum collections including the Giuseppe De Nittis Art Gallery. The heart of the old town is the Castle, one of the most beautiful Renaissance fortresses in the South. A few steps away is the Cathedral, one of the few examples of a palatine basilica in Apulia.
