Within Bari, you can find Basilica di San Nicola, which was completed in 1197. It is said to have a squarish look that is more suitable for a palace rather than a church. The palace impression is strongly influenced by the two low massive towers that frame the church’s facade. It is home to a ‘cathedral’ or the bishop’s throne, and is among the most notable Romanesque sculptures from southern Italy. Other noteworthy works within the Basilica also include mosaic pavements, columns, and the Renaissance tomb of Bona Sforza. Basilica di Santa Croce, or Church of the Holy Cross in Lecce, Italy, is a Baroque church that was completed in 1695. The church’s exterior has six smooth columns that support an entablature, and a highly decorated facade. The church’s interior, however, has 17 altars and side chapels.
