San Nicolaus the most amazing festivity I have ever seen. Ana in Puglia from Mexico.

I am Ana, Mexican student in Economics. Last spring I taught Spanish in a school of Bari  for an internship organized by AIESEC.  During my six weeks of permanency in Apulia Region, I participated at typical Saint Nicolaus Day, Saint Patron of Bari, since XI century, when local sailors stole Nicolaus relics from Turkey. In fact Bari is one the four towns in the world that hosts Saint Nicolaus relics. Saint Nicolaus festivity in Bari is one of the most amazing that I have ever seen. All town is embellished with lights while fireworks are launched in the sky.

In all parts of Bari town you can breath medieval history, because travelling in Puglia means discovering different ages and centuries.
