Bari is a port city and capital of the Puglia (Apulia) region in southeastern Italy. It is a beautiful old town with a bustling traditional harbor and stunning beaches. Bari has many historical sites, including the 12th-century Romanesque cathedral, Norman castle, Basilica of San Nicola, founded in 1087 to house the relics of St. Nicholas.
Modern residential zones surrounding the centre of Bari were built during the 1960s and 1970s, replacing the old suburbs that had developed along roads splaying outwards from gates in the city walls. Also, the outer suburbs increased during the 1990s. The city has a redeveloped airport, Karol Wojtyła Airport, with connections to several European cities.
Here below are some fascinating photos that show what Bari looked like in the 1980s.
