March 6, 2018 Madelene Haan

Corato is a town and comune in Italy. It is located in the Bari province of the Apulian region, in southeastern Italy. Founded by the Normans, it became subject to Alfonso V, king of Aragon, at the end of the 15th century, and later to the Carafa family. The chief feature of the old town centre, which is surrounded by modern buildings, is the Romanesque church. It is a twin city of Grenoble, France, where many Coratini immigrated during the 20th century.

Museo del Confetto Mucci Giovanni

Reviewed By AntoCity - Rome, Italy

Very easy to easy by car. You can enjoy a visit to the museum in the city center or go to the factory to buy some dragees. What can I say to describe the flavour, the colour and the taste of these sweet jewels? Just try them! In Puglia we usually eat these "confetti" during the Carnival period when you can find them in every bars which have a special irresistable smell!

Cattedrale di Trani

Reviewed By FYL003 - Chicago, Illinois

Definitely the number 1 tourist attraction in Trani. The exterior is impressive, a massive lime stone structure along the sea coast. The church had been rebuilt, and expanded over the centuries. No photographs were allowed inside the church. The interior was fairly simple.

Cathedral San Pietro

Reviewed By Bill C - Winchester, United Kingdom

The last time we visited Bisceglie (some 9 years ago) the Cathedral was closed for renovation. This time we arrived just as the Cathedral was closing (for lunch what else)? but the custodian, whose name we did not get, very kindly stayed behind to give us a very personal tour of this church. As we both are volunteers in Winchester Cathedral we are interested in Romanesque churches such as San Pietro. This particular church is a few years older than Winchester but the build similarities were quite clear to us. It is a very small church but full of interest and the custodian, when he found out why we were
interested, became quite enthusiastic. Well worth a visit if you are in town, it can be found in the old quarter and could be difficult to find if you aren't sure where you are in town. We were lucky but don't try and visit over the lunch and siesta hours!

Palazzo Jatta

Palazzo Jatta was built in the middle of the XIX century to host the Jatta's Archeological Museum. Nowadays you can visit eight rooms: the entrance, the chapel, the living room, the bedroom, the library, the dining room, the dancing room and the gallery of the ancestors where are saved the original wall papers, decoration on the ceiling and floors. Inside are exhibited old furniture (XVIII and XIX century) and paintings (XVI, XVII, XIII, XIX century). Visits by reservation only

Reviewed By twitexpat - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Indeed, the collection can't compete with the famous big museums. But, considering the cheap entrance fee and the size of the town, you would be surprised by the content of the collection. However, it's a shame that there's no English panel to explain you what you are seeing.

Chiesa di Santa Maria Greca

Reviewed By The-Doctor-Max - Corato, Italy

Il nome e l’origine di questa graziosa chiesa nel centro storico di Corato deriva da una apparizione avvenuta durante la terribile pestilenza del 1656, nel sotterraneo di una torre di cinta (la torre Greca) dei muraglioni.
La chiesa del 1664 subì importanti lavori di rifacimento, assumendo la sua attuale struttura che si presenta con una facciata molto semplice.
L’interno è sviluppato su pianta a croce greca suddivisa in tre navate.
All'interno la tomba di Luisa Piccareta (la santa).
Scendendo nella cripta della chiesa, è possibile ammirare l’icona miracolosa della Madonna Greca.
