The Apulia region boasts a great architectural and cultural heritage, as well as natural wonders from the coasts to the inner areas.
Among the wonders of this region, Castel del Monte has an exceptional value for the perfection of its structure and the fusion of different architectural elements from northern Europe, the Arab world and classical antiquity.
It is a castle with an octagonal base, built around 1240 by Emperor Frederick II, in the hamlet of the town of Andria. Still today, its grandeur and unique shape surprise the visitors.
In 1996, the UNESCO Committee meeting has included this castle among the World Heritage Sites.
