  • Certainly one of the most beautiful castles in Puglia! Beautiful view from the top of the Castle and the Museum is very cute. Very reasonable prices

  • The castle of Barletta is one of the most beautiful historical structures maintained well and recover from a major restoration for the visit to the public. Was founded by the Normans, who built it to defend the city, and then succeeded in time to Svevo, who transformed it into some parts making it more elegant. The arrival of the Spaniards, was turned into a fortification to defend the enemies. He resisted even the destruction of wars and came to the present day as it can be seen today. Worth visiting.

  • 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.
