  • Decent signage. A good sense of the space can be had by walking the inner part and then around the walls. There are good views from the tower.  more »
  • 13th-century castle, built by Frederick II in 1233, on top of the Hill was the Acropolis of Albano Lucera romana, while the walls were built by Charles I of Anjou in 1269. The walls, of 900 meters, 13 square towers, 2 pentagonal bastions, 7 buttresses and 2 angular cylindrical towers surround the entire Hill. Four doors allow access to the fortress: Lucera, Troia, Door Door Guardiola and Door Castel Fiorentino. The fortress contained a military Citadel, a chapel, a cistern for collecting water and the bridge over the moat, realized in the Angevin period.

  • It is a Swabian-Angevin fortress with walls and towers very well preserved. Open the Queen's Tower, visit not to be missed.

  • Beautiful visual impact of this fortress. The Queen's Tower is well cared for and I found clever, especially for children, the film screened inside with the reconstruction of the interior spaces. You can and should do much yet. It's a treasure trove that should be exploited.

  • The Swabian-Angevin Fortress, also known as Castle of Lucera is a historic military structure dating back to the 13th century, built in Frederick and Angevin age and one of the symbols of the city of Lucera. Situated on the top plain of Colle Albano, dominates the Tavoliere. Circa 1233, Frederick II had his Palatium, which Charles I of Naples joined the majestic Fort, completed in 1283, turned into a Citadel. To date, the whole area is the archaeological area. Are visible traces of different periods: Neolithic huts, ruins of the Roman, early Christian, Swabian and Angevin.

  • Departing for the journey on the paths of Frederick II the Swabian Angevin Fortress of Lucera, located on Colle Albano. The castle was designed by #FedericoII around 1220 to control the Saracens moved forcibly from Sicily that soon turned into a Citadel. The outer perimeter of the fortress is still visible, built by Charles I of Anjou and completed in 1283. From here you can admire a magnificent panorama that goes from the Crown of the Sub-Apennines to the Gargano massif and beyond, to the peaks of the Gran Sasso and Maiella.

  • The Swabian Angiolina fortress is one of the main attractions of the city of Lucera, I strongly urge the visit ... the only flaw: there should be more care especially of the area inside the walls.
