Lucera

Lucera

 

 

The old town of Lucera developed around the well-preserved Cathedral dedicated of Our Lady of Assumption, built by Charles of Anjou in 1300. It is one of the best preserved examples of Angevin Architecture on south Italy. It has a spired brick facade and the central portal decorated by a large rose window.

Of great interest the Castle built by Frederick II, between 1223 and 1229; the Amphitheatre built in the I century and surrounded by tombs and the remains of period dwellings; and the Church of the Madonna della Spiga, with a priceless XVI century fresco of the Madonna.
