The old port of Bari between history, traditions, nightlife ... and culture of raw seafood from Bari
Il old port of Bari , also known in Bari as “N-dèrre la lanze”, is one of the most historical, traditional places and which best represents those characteristic features of the baresity handed down over the generations.
The old port , located between the S.Nicola pier and the S.Antonio pier, is famous for being a reference point for fishermen for the mooring of their boats , but above all to host the fish market where you can see (but also taste) the catch of the day mainly oriented to raw seafood.
That of seafood is a tradition that Bari has been carrying on since the dawn of time and which still today are the battle horses of Bari's tables.
The Bari are also generous, so when you pass by the old port, precisely in the fish market area, you may find (if you are lucky) some fishermen who, to welcome you or convince you to buy from him, will be willing to let you taste something of his catch.
Today the area of the old port is not only a place for fishermen but also a meeting point for young people; it is in fact at nightfall that the boys begin to gather (especially in summer) at the S.Nicola pier in the company of a beer and lots of laughs.
Seeing is believing.
