The Co-Cathedral of Ruvo di Puglia
is a church in Ruvo di Puglia, Apulia
, southern Italy
, an example of late Apulian Romanesque architecture. It was built in the 12th-13th centuries, with several later modifications.
The current exterior is the result of early 20th century restoration works which removed the Baroque additions. The church has a sloped façade with three portals: the central and larger one, flanked by two columns standing on lions and surmounted by griphons, has internal reliefs which once were part of a pre-existing construction. They depict "Christ with the Twelve Apostles", other scenes of the Redeemer's life and vegetable motifs. The smaller ones, at the sides, have a simpler shape, with two semi-columns supporting ogival arches; they also belonged a previous buildings.
The church's subterranean rooms include the remains of a Palaeo-Christian (5th-6th centuries AD) church and Roman and Peucetian tombs.
