Museo Nicolaiano

Bari's Museo Nicolaiano opened in 2010 and is located in the old town, immediately after the gated archway facing the waterfront, which leads to the Basilica of St. Nicholas. The exhibition areas display the centuries-old history of the Basilica, a long-standing pilgrimage destination, through relics associated with the beloved saint and the city's historical and artistic vicissitudes over the centuries, since the Byzantine period. Epigraphs, scrolls and precious illuminated manuscripts are showcased alongside glazed ceramic, coat of arms, reliquaries, goblets and several silver artefacts, paintings and sacred vestments. Three exhibition halls: Angelo Docente, Ruggero and Diavolo in bosco halls, plus the corridor of display cases and the area dedicated to temporary exhibitions
