  • I was at the castle for a summer wedding. Evocative place, very nice, romantic. You eat well, you are served well. As for small receptions, meeting goes well.

  • Amendment Giangirolamo II the arms of Acquaviva, Acquaviva coat of arms in the castle building, fenced and surrounded by a beautiful garden is primarily a fortified villa, despite the frequent name for Castle; It has a rectangular plant with four corner towers and consists of a ground floor balustrades sawed-off shotguns, one elevated and higher. The loggias of the Windows at the ends of the main facade, communicate with elegant circular terraces derived from coverage of the towers. Double ramp access staircase that leads to a harmonious loggia with three-light window, these balusters and the two symmetrical facades and construction for the gracefulness and tripartite characterize the elegance of its architecture. [1] The ground floor, medieval, is distinguished by a large hall decorated with paintings, noble coats of arms and hunting symbols. Overlying environments, late Baroque, are furnished with period furniture, artistic ceramics, oil portraits of count of Conversano Giangirolamo II (1600-1665, known as il Guercio delle Puglie) and his wife Isabella Filomarino, with a precious wooden ceiling on which stands the coat of arms and the family tree of Acquaviva d'Aragona. Interesting baroque chapel with a painting depicting the Virgin with the child. [2] do not know the meaning of the name given to the small castle which also identifies the borgata. The feudal lords of Conversano resided in the massive Castle of the town, but resided seasonally in the palazzetto of Alberobello and Macdonald, to hunt, surrounded by a thicket of oak trees and Mediterranean vegetation, with an area of 1260 hectares. The locals were talking about an alleged underworld that connected the villa at the castle of count, sometimes used by the infamous Gates, but also by his heirs. [3] in 1730 count Giulio Antonio III (1691-1746), attracted by the beauty of the area, wanted to transform his hunting in a noble residence and entrusted the task to the architect Vincenzo Ruffo, a pupil of Luigi Vanvitelli, author of the Palace of Caserta. [4] After the devolution of the County to the Kingdom of Naples, in 1806, the villa underwent a sad situation of cultural and environmental decay: the Woods was battered to make farmland and rented out to families of farmers, very laborious but somewhat heedless of its artistic and historic heritage. [5] around 1920, Princess Giulia Acquaviva d'Aragona (1887-1972) took possession of Macdonald and initiated an intense intelligent operation restoration, continued by his son, a true gentleman and lover of art, Fabio Tomacelli Filomarino (1920-2003), the last descendant of the House Acquaviva of Aragon, died without issue. [3] in 1976 the castle of Marchione was declared a national monument.
