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.

We walked along the beach from our hotel to Castle. Castle admission is reasonable and view from castle is breath taking. They are not open 7days. I can't remember which day is close....so better check before you visit castle. My friends couldn't get to see.

The castle looks great from the outside and the adjusted city park is nice as well. Definitely worth to visit. The castle also have a museum/art gallery with very interesting pieces displayed. Great view from the top and an interesting ground floor/dungeon.
