A guided tour to discover the city of the “Disfida”, a knightly battle between French and Italians. You will stroll through its interesting ancient village that preserves the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, the Norman - Swabian - Aragonese fortified castle that still keeps its underground passages and the "Cantina della Disfida", where the historical event took place for the city in 1503. Barletta is the birthplace of the impressionist painter Giuseppe De Nittis, who lived in Paris, whose main works are now kept in the Pinacoteca inside the Palazzo Della Marra
WHAT WILL WE DO DURING THE WALK?
We will start from the square in front of the Castle, in the company of a tour guide to visit the imposing Castle on the sea, which has experienced various construction and expansion periods up to its current size. The walk will continue towards the historic center to reach the Cathedral, to continue towards a curious stage like the Cantina della Disfida where the story of knightly challenge and brave men of other times will be told. Finally, we will reach the imposing Colossus of Heraclius, a bronze statue 5 meters high, located in front of the Church Santo Sepolcro.
