Full Description

Since 1996 registered in the list of UNESCO World Heritage monuments.

Barletta-Andria-Trani is a newly established province in Apulia, located between the Gulf of Manfredonia and the Territory of Bari. Barletta and Trani face the limpid waters of the Adriatic sea, while Andria is located further inland, very close to the Alta Murgia that occupies most of the area of the Province. Castel del Monte was built around 1240 and it is located on a green hill, 20 kilometers from Andria, in the Alta Murgia National Park. The Castle became the permanent seat of the court of Frederick II of Hohenstaufen that called it "Stupor Mundi" for his eclecticism and the vastness of his culture. The mysterious octagonal plan of the manor, as an astronomical observatory or an imposing manor of hunting, differs significantly in the structure from all the other castles of Puglia. The perfection of the forms, the harmony between elements originating from different cultures, the aura of mystery surrounding it, make of this imposing fortress a unique masterpiece, the reason why it was declared World Heritage Site. Cathedrals and castles are jewels of architecture, symbols of the territory of Apulia, and some very interesting ones are in this province. Itinerary: - Meeting with the tourist guide and visit of the castle.
