  • It's Medieval cellar where, in 1503, launched the challenge, which ended, as we know with the victory of the Italian Knights, led by Ettore Fieramosca. Then the southern Italy was fought over by the French and Spanish and many Italians were in the pay of the Spanish. During a skirmish the French fell prisoners. The Spanish Captain-General Chan from Cordova, as then it was organized in the cellar object of our visit, a huge Banquet, to which were invited the French prisoners. During the banquet, the Spaniards began to praise the Italian Knights, provoking the wrath of the French and in particular of Monsieur La Motte, which was to defy openly Ettore Fieramosca. Sometime after 13 Italian Knights, led by Fas and 13 French knights met in the open field, between Andria and Corato s. Elia neighborhood, and the French knights were hopelessly defeated. The cellar of the challenge today is not particularly exciting. It has a trapezoidal shape. On the walls are 13 shields with the insignia of the Italian Knights. In some display cases are costumes. To visit the winery you have to take a ticket or at the Castle or the Palazzo della Marra and so you can visit besides the Castle and quoted Palace, also the wine cellar. Like saying that if anyone would see only the basement can't do that! Truly unique! Closed on Mondays. In front of the cellar there is a small temple, dedicated to the 13 Knights, whose names are listed on a large bronze plaque. The temple, built in 1930, has been restored and returned to the city in 2005.

  • Well kept and evocative. No big deal, indendiamoci, but here you can see a completely preserved medieval cellar which, moreover, was the scene of the famous "challenge". Stage not essential but very interesting.

  • Barletta was already in full preparation for the colorful, historical Sfidafeesten during our visit ... but events one did pass 2 days after that visit! Bad timing! But the "Cantina" have we can visit, and here is finally everything started ....! Now there was a statue to the restoration and we could admire the costumes.
