The Church of Saint-Andrew, closed to the urban walls, is a peculiar building in Barletta’s historic centre. It consists in a 5 meter raised structure above the road level, resulting from numerous layering and extensions throughout the centuries. The monumental entrance is flanked by four small columns with capitals, which probably supported an arch. The tympanum presents carved sculptures portraying Christ with the Virgin and John the Baptist. Situated on the side of the semi-circular tympanum, angels on their knees oriented to the centre of the scene. The interior has three naves and it witnessed the buildings of twelve chapels. The nave consists in a timber roof truss and a system of pilasters, which separates it from the two aisles. At the far end of the room stands the main altar, with a barrel-vault.
