The old port of Bari between history, traditions, nightlife... and culture of Bari-style raw seafood


The old port of Bari , also known in Bari as "N-dèrre la lanze", is one of the most historic, traditional places and which best represents those characteristic features of the Bari tradition handed down over the generations.

The old port , located between the S.Nicola pier and the S.Antonio pier, is famous for being a point of reference for fishermen for docking their boats , but above all for hosting the fish market where you can see (but also savor) the catch of the day mainly oriented towards raw seafood.

Seafood is a tradition that Bari has carried on since the dawn of time and which are still the workhorses of Bari tables today.

The people of Bari are also generous, so when you pass by the old port, precisely in the fish market area, you might find (if you are lucky) some fisherman 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; in fact, it is at dusk that the kids begin to gather (especially in summer) at the S.Nicola pier in the company of a beer and lots of laughter.

Seeing is believing.
