Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stunning cathedral dedicated to the Assumption of the Bleesed Virigin Mary and one of the oldest in Puglia. The Rose window from the 13th Century dominates the front facade. Bronze doors with knockers from 1119 was the entrance to the cathedral, stop there for while and admire the work on 28 panels. The interior is simple, the central nave high makes it magnificent. The empty cathedral, silence and special sun light made the cathedral ad the perfect place to slow down and meditate for while. Troia off the beaten track gem, good place to relax. The town looked very relaxed and without tourist. On the cathedral square you can find tourist office which can handle map, and brochure, they do not speak English.

The Santa Maria Assunta cathedral is the most beautiful *romanic* cathedral of Apulia (impressive the rosone), in a beautiful little town.
Unfortunately, there is nothing else around for kms...

Lovely building in several colours of stone, and wonderful bronze doors. A highlight of my week in Puglia. Stop somewhere for a taste of the lovely local wine too...

First went to Troia 4 years ago. My husband was born there and returned after 40 years to visit family. I fell in love with it. I can't believe tourists come in and out of this small town in the provence of Foggia. But they do. There is frequent bus service from Foggia. Also worth seeing is Lucera by bus.The train (Eurostar) from Rome to Foggia is a pleasant ride. This town or Troia and the surrounding towns is for people who want to see a small rustic, lava stone street village. The ancient is there to see but it's also ecclectic and artsy.
I wouldn't say the Cathedral is the best church in Italy but it is interesting, as is the town and town folk.
The people are shy and aren't fluent in English but they do understand and are willing to speak to tourists. Tourists might be intimidated but I encourange them to speak to the locals,since they will be well received with a cautious but friendly curiosity.
The food is fantastic. Try the Osteria Bed and Breakfast. View the farm land from the walls in the Villa(Park) Summmer is the best time for nitely street fair entertainment but bear the brutal heat without air-conditioning anywhere. These townsfolk have a peculiar superstition about drafts and cold.
We purchased a small apt. for vacation because we love it so much. Even in these small towns, beware of fast, crazy drivers.
The town is safe but avoid teen hang-outs late nites at pubs and watch for stray dogs. The ancient cemetary down the hill Viale Kennedy is worth a visit. Stroll around and be Merry all over town, in and out of ancient archways and casitas that remind one of Bedrock. Yabba Dabba Doo!

I went to Troia to visit the Cathedral, unfortunately it was closed due to renovation, works will continue for some time. However, I could admire it from the exterior, and it is really a masterpiece. The city centre is also beautiful. Overall it's worth a stop.

We did not realy know what to expect when visiting this Cathedral.Set in the middle of town you can regognise it apart from the ogher buildings because on the protruding carved stone hanging off the front facia. Loads of decoration and the doors have some very interesting knockers.Inside it was no less ornate with lots of painting/murals and carving. Very beautiful and worth the visit.
A sweet little man approached us when we were outside and gave us a pamphlet on the church (in Italia).we thanked him and he just dissapeared!

Just look at this cathedral from the outside to have a first glance precise: the lower, rectangular, reminiscent of the low-set and massive temples, blind arches typical of the eastern Byzantine churches and the bow higher than the above 'entrance are the "figure" stylistic Eastern Roman Empire which had replaced Robert Guiscard only a few years earlier: the mixture of styles therefore between north and south europe, with the elite who takes over Norman and Byzantine.

The style thus anticipates what will be a century later, the Romanesque style of the emperor Frederick II of Swabia and Nicola Pisano (or, indeed, Nicholas of Apulia).Truly remarkable bronze doors at the main entrance, kept in an excellent and full of inscriptions and sculptures.

A curiosity is the difference between the right side and the left side, entrusted to two different builders, which evidently ignored each other during the construction :)

My review has intrigued you? well, it's time to go to T.roia, in Puglia and get inside the cathedral if you want to surprise you by columns of polished stone and ancient sculptures, and after the "inside tour" you can also visit the museum of the crypt, just un the right of the church.

The Duomo has recently been cleaned and the sculptures on the front are not only interesting but unique....animals with legs that hang over the front. An important Romanesque building not to be missed

We stopped for a visit to the cathedral and our expectations were exceeded. We particularly enjoyed the windows and doors. There are good explanations of the cathedral in English.
