  • The Succorpo is the most important track in the history of Bari. Here is visible part of the track of a Roman road that ran to the side of the oldest cathedral destroyed in 1156. Going Down the staircase to the right leading to the crypt opens a gate that, 5 meters deep compared to the current floor, allows you to enter the ancient church of Bari Paleochristian. In 1700 These environments, now used as burials, were abandoned following the decree on the Burials Extramoenia, found in 1890 by Pietro Fantasia, which carried out partial inspections and restorations. Entering The Succorpo we come across the most extensive and monumental excavation: the first and oldest Paleochristian basilica, built in the Fifth century D. C., which did not undergo any substantial modifications and retained the original plant until the early medieval period (XI century). The Church has three large naves, with an apse facing east. Of This first building are visibiliparti of mosaic paving of which the major part at the old entrance and called "Mosaic of Timothy", from the name of the client mentioned in the inscription, a faithful Christian who dissolding a vow with the His gifts completed the decoration of the hall. Flowers and racemes frame the inscription in Latin, reminiscent of a vow dissolved by the devotee Timothy and expresses the joy of the Christian community of Bari that "rejoices in his Bishop Andrew." Remains of medieval cisterns and tombs and a small church with traces of fresco Are visible. A Journey through history and beauty that is absolutely not to be missed.
