Castel del Monte, Andria

4.2
Protected as a World Heritage site, the image of Castel del Monte appears on the Italian version of the one-cent euro coin. When the castle was built in the 13th century, the fertile region would have made a comfortable lodge for emperors. However, the structure was most likely used as a citadel. The interior has been looted and vandalized, and some of the marble columns and other features ended up in the Bourbon family's royal houses. You can visit the wineries in the wine country around the castle, which produces limited-production barrels of Riserva.

  • Very interesting castle to visit including a very interesting history right up the second world war! Unfortunately a lot of people stripped the castle of its valuables. Great view from the top into...  more »

  • Excellent monument. Pity a Vist in two will cost you 37€ if you choose a guided visit (highly recommended). You need to park one km away. If you use the bathroom, you need to pay and they don’t even give you a paper towel. The shuttle driver was to say the least very rude and unfriendly. The personnel at the castle are wonderful. We chose a private guide who was very knowledgeable and explained the very interesting history of the Castle. Worth the visit but the people running the parking and the shuttle need to get their act straight.
  • A masterpiece! The combination of ancient, gothic and Islamic architecture make this truly unique. Built on an octagonal basis each turret mirrors the main castle's shape. The setting too...just unreal. The views of the surrounding area are immense and properly breathtaking. Well worth the trip to get there.
