Afterwards, you will continue towards other historic landmarks such as Piazza Mercantile, the city's main square with the 16th century Palazzo Sedile dei Nobili, and the fortress-like Basilica of St. Nicholas, built between 1087 and 1197 to house the saint's relics that were stolen from Myra in Turkey. The church is an important site of pilgrimage for both Roman Catholics and those of the Orthodox faith.
