Castel del Monte, between wonder and mistery

1 review
Castel del Monte, the famous octagonal fortress symbol of the crown of Frederick II of Swabia and magnificent testimony of the reign of one of the most fascinating and mysterious emperor of medieval history.<br><br>An hour of tour inside the internal and external environments of the Frederick's manor, to better understand what lies behind the apparent simplicity and sobriety of a castle that once looked much richer and more decorated than nowadays.<br><br>Let yourself be accompanied by our guides, who will reveal details that would otherwise be impossible to notice by simple visitor's eye.<br><br>The tour is on request and does not include the transfer to Castel del Monte.<br><br>Meeting point at CAT parking. The entrance ticket to the castle (7 euros) and the cost of the shuttle bus (1 euro) are excluded from the cost of the tour.<br>

Loved the way this castle was periodically modified to keep up with changing weapons technology we swept through the courtyards and salons to see the remains of medieval frescoes.

This is a huge castle set in the old part of Barletta city overlooking the sea. It has been wonderfully maintained, full of old manuscripts, stone relics and artworks. There is an amazing subterranean area with a natural ‘soundbox’ in one room. Don’t miss this!

it is a castle, but mostly used for exhibitions. impressive from outside but not so much inside. views from castle towards sea is of industrial port. town itself was the least impressive I saw in my stay in Puglia.

Had the chance to discover this beautiful castle/fortress and it was in the evening. The special illumination casted such lovely lights all over.

Only visited the castle from the outside as it was closed the day we were in Barletta but it is a tremendously impressive structure. It is a museum and art gallery inside, which we were sorry we missed, but we were still impressed by the outside and glad we saw it!
