  • The castle is well preserved and the itinerary also allows the path of the outside walls. Good descriptions of the works and striking the underground part. You can buy tickets for the nearby also Cantina contextually.

  • The Swabian Castle is kept very well and is a prestigious and useful cultural container for permanent and temporary exhibitions, like the present one on the great Carthaginian leader Hannibal. Really a wonderful cultural discovery.

  • I was with friends and colleagues of the AICC (Engl. classical culture) in November in a tour which included a visit of the Cathedral and the Palazzo Della Marra. The castle is really interesting and valuable; nicely renovated both outside and inside, is an authentic jewel of late medieval military art. The outdoor spaces are really extensive and terraces you can enjoy a wonderful view. At sunset we could appreciate the beauty of the city and the Cathedral with its tall Bell Tower. Inside we were able to visit the exhibition dedicated to Hannibal, the Carthaginian leader, who fought the Romans. The exhibition is well paginated and through posters, cartoons and the Windows lets you know the civilization dauna through artifacts, pottery and weapons. The exhibition, if I remember correctly, will last until the next spring.

  • Great landmark. Though the castello in Bari looks and feels better. This one appears a little out of place to its surroundings.
  • One of the largest and best preserved castles in Puglia. Play with the echo in the giant halls at the base of the towers, visit the contemporary art exhibition in the basement and look at the city from above while walking on the wall perimeter.
  • One of the symbols of my city. Majestic structure, exceptional State of preservation, surrounded by the splendid villa comunale, sea front; the beauty of being able to visit almost completely (from the basement to enormous external walkways). For those who visit it now, going on a trip with some exhibition Hannibal, beautiful on display (the bust of the Quirinale, the most famous image of the Carthaginian military leader, and a stunning bronze armor borrowed from the Bardo Museum in Tunis) on the first floor the Municipal Museum, with works of the 17th century 18th century Neapolitan (V, father and son, Jordan, Mengs, De Mura) and of the main painters Babs (Garada , Gulls, Dami); even a small Cellini collection C. Don't forget to take a walk in the ' terrace '. A must for anyone visiting Barletta.

  • The imposing Castle of Barletta, impressive fortress situated a few steps from the Adriatic Sea, was built by the Swabians towards the 13th century as a defensive fortress in the city. Today is one of the most important historical buildings of the whole Apulia. The scenic Castle is composed of a four-sided structure characterized by four massive angular bastions that throw themselves on top of deep ditches. The entrance leads to the spacious courtyard, summer seat of cultural events, featuring opening spaces to the basement where you can admire the sea wall of the palatium angioino and the bastion of St. Anthony. Up towards the upper floors leads to different environments, including the Civic Museum, the library and the boardroom. Of remarkable interest is also the terrace, from which you can admire the charming port of Barletta. Not far from the Castle stands the beautiful Cathedral of Barletta, also called Santa Maria Maggiore Cathedral, by the 11th century. Leaving the duomo leads to the historic square of the challenge, from which you have to cross the port gate, the only visible reminder of the ancient city walls before reaching the port.
