Guide to visiting Lucera

Interest

Lucera was in the past an important city: from the Renaissance until the beginning of the nineteenth century it was the capital city of Capitanata, but despite the many historical events that have it at the center, Lucera does not preserve many historical memories of its important past . Overall, however, is worth a visit, especially if combined with neighboring Troy

Guide service

The guide service requires half a day.

The half-day visit of Lucera can be combined with the visit of Bovino, Troia, San Giovanni Rotondo, Monte Sant’Angelo, Manfredonia, Pietra Montecorvino

Half day itinerary

The first stop of the visit is the beautiful Amphitheater of Lucera, without any doubt one of the most important testimonies of Roman times in the Land of Puglia. I recommend the whole visit of this great work of the age of Augustus that presents itself to us in all its splendor after a careful restoration. To continue our itinerary we get back on the bus and we move to the other side of the city being the Amphitheater away from other monuments.
We reach Piazza Matteotti by bus, from which a beautiful scenic road starts, which can only be traveled on foot, at the end of which the magnificent walls of the Castle of Lucera lie before us. Unfortunately, such an imposing exterior does not correspond to an equally grandiose interior. We will evaluate together whether it is appropriate to enter or not. Let’s go back to enter the historic center: we meet the beautiful Church of San Francesco and the even more important city Cathedral: uncommon examples of Apulian Gothic, the latter sort (according to a tradition) on the site previously occupied by the Mosque of the Saracen city.
