Trani, Trani castle
Trani castle is one of the most interesting examples of those buildings known as Frederican castles, a real circuit of castles built by Frederick II of Swabia.
The castle rises above the sea to defend its city and is famous for being chosen by Manfred, son of Frederick II of Swabia, as the location of his wedding celebrations to Helen of Epirus.
We recommend you visit the castle, in particular during the summer period when the historical re-enactment takes place of Manfred’s wedding.
