Lucera Cathedral

Cathedral and Museum

Save to my Account

The Gothic-style cathedral in Lucera, erected in 1300, is of interest for having been built on the site of the last remaining medieval mosque in Italy (destroyed when the cathedral was built). During his reign, Frederick II expelled all Muslims from Sicily and many of them were went to Lucera, which had a large Muslim community until the city was sacked by Charles II of Naples who exiled the Muslims and made Lucera a Christian city.

Inside the museum (admission charge) there is a good collection of religious art works from the middle ages to more modern times (you’ll see a couple of the art works in the photos).

Also in Lucera you can also visit remains of a castle and a Roman amphitheater.
