Fodor's Review

Bari's 12th-century cathedral is the seat of the local bishop and was the scene of many significant political marriages between important families in the Middle Ages. The cathedral is dedicated to San Sabino, a 6th-century bishop who apparently lived to be 105. The architecture reflects the Romanesque style favored by the Normans of that period. Visit the crypt with its ornate columns, polychrome marble altar, and silver-and-gold icon of Maria Santissima di Costantinopoli, also known as the Vergine Odegitria, patron of Bari along with San Nicola.
