  • The Castle built in the 10th century, dominates the town of the beautiful village of Deliceto and already at the entrance portal appears on the coat of arms of the Piccolomini family who, over the centuries, they have been resident in addition to various dominations (Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Aragonese) distinguished the noble and prestigious history. The imposing structure, apart from some areas absurdly let dirty with remains of garbage (but it's so hard to par pay an entrance fee and, with the revenue, provide better decor of this magnificent monument?), it's really impressive ( especially in the evening) and well maintained, though these are mainly environments without objects and furnishings. Inside are held several demonstrations throughout the year that make live the Castle and allow you to find out maybe you, as in our case, with the utmost courtesy and availability of a volunteer from the local Pro Loco that accompanied us during the visit. The location of the Castle shows its defensive nature and lookout over the surrounding territory of subappennino dauno and its architectural peculiarities. In fact, compared to similar buildings, the shape is an irregular trapezoid with numerous walkways along the outer walls and the presence of some historic towers, among which the best known is the Norman Square Tower, called "Donjon", about 30 metres and dominating whole Capitanata (on nice days you can see the surrounding mountains, the Tavoliere and Gargano!) and the medieval village below. A fine monument that should be protected better and even more valued.

  • The sentry of Puglia, a massive castle that looks to the Tavoliere. Unfortunately, almost everything has been destroyed and stand only the walls (which cannot be passed unfortunately) and towers, one of which can be visited. Ocorrerebbe more maintenance and more care to this castle that still remains a major historical record of our past
