Frederick II

When the Emperor Frederick II built this castle near Bari in the 13th century, he imbued it with symbolic significance, as reflected in the location, the mathematical and astronomical precision of the layout and the perfectly regular shape.

A unique piece of medieval military architecture.

Wheelchair users Apulia accessible tours Castel del Monte, located in the municipality of Andria, rises on a rocky hill dominating the surrounding countryside of the Murgia.

Touring Castel del Monte

The octagonal shaped, courtyard is characterized, as the whole building, by the chromatic contrast between the colours of the utilized materials: coral crushed stone, limestone and marbles.

The slab representing a parade of knights and a fragment of an anthropomorphous figure are the only remains of the sculptures once making a fine show there.

On the first floor three French windows open, under which some jutting out elements and some holes utilized, maybe, to hold up a wooden gallery.

The 16 halls, eight on each floor, have a trapezoidal shape and have been tiled with an ingenious technical solution.

The two floors are linked up by three winding staircases inserted in as many towers.

Some of the towers contain tanks for collecting the rainwater partly conveyed to the large tank sunk in the rock, under the central courtyard.

Frederick II's fame is bound above all to the construction of castles, dislocated according to a rational program of military defence and of administration of the territory and in functional relation with the pre-existing road network of the Roman age.

Frederick's castle system consisted of a tight net of settlements, in which the castles were integrated with other kinds of structures, in order to assure a widespread control, both military and administrative, on the whole territory from the coast till the inside regions of Basilicata.
