Bari is an elegant white town on the Adriatic sea, it combines both a sophsticated atmosphere of South Italy and the simplicity of a small provincial area. Bari is a total dominion of San Nicola. If you are not a believer and only a connoseur, San Nicola involves you in the Magic world of miracles.

You experience this overwhelming energy of San Nicola. But the story of San Nicola in Bari starts in 1087, when the city, once prosperious and powerful, became a degrading corner long the Adriatic Coast. The only creative solution to come out from the heavy financial crises was to steel the tomb and the treasures of San Nicola from Myra. Any modern scenario seems to be weak in comparison with the advantures of San Nicola. As a result, San Nicola brought from Myra without any permission or blessing dropped the anchor in Bari where the happy crowd was waiting for him eagily. Through it was a top secret mission, everyone was aware of San Nicola's arrival: bishops, priests, politicians, merchants, travellers, curious, beggars... Now San Nicola is everywhere and thanks to him, Bari breathes miracles.
