Castel del Monte

MappaCastel del Monte

You cannot miss a visit to this castle built and commissioned by Frederick II and presumably completed around 1240. Due to its shape and function, Castel del Monte is significantly distinguished from the other castles open to the public in Puglia. The octagonal shape on which the entire building is structured on one side represents a rigorous architectural design, while on the other recalls rather symbolic aspects (probably) that make a visit to the castle even more interesting. It is also worth remembering that in the construction of this castle, whose planning was directly observed by the Emperor, Frederick II was inspired by other buildings he visited during the sixth Crusade.
