  • The external structure of the Castle objectively deserves full marks. With its majestic twelve-sided cylindrical tower and bastion dominates, in fact, the entire historical centre and offers an excellent and very impressive (especially in the evenings thanks to an excellent lighting system) business card to those who approach the Castle and the old town of the ancient Norba. Though (as noted by other users of TripAdvisor) walking around it is evident that this unique property instead of being protected as res publica over the years has been sold off, commodified and privatized. The end result is an accumulation of bars, cafes, studios and other private environments that lurk beneath and within the walls of the Castle. With the additional implied consequence that general users and in particular the local one has been deprived of a very important piece of their history, which, frankly, is really from sigmatizzare. In recent years, at least, in some of the rooms of the Manor are hosted cultural events and exhibitions (at first on De Chirico and least on Man Ray, but I was not fully convinced). In any case to be reviewed and, above all, to be restored, the entrance portal and the staircase which gives access to the exhibition halls.

  • Is the symbol par excellence of Conversano with its imposing towers (circular, dodecagonal and teacher) can be visited inside in some parts too bad not everyone in that village

  • Beautiful castle, to be enjoyed during the day and even more with the beautiful night lighting. A real find.
