📍 From Agriturismo sei carri, Italy
Castel del Monte is a unique 13th century castle situated in the Puglia region of Italy, near the city of Andria. Built in a polygonal shape by Frederick II of Swabia, the castle was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. It stands proudly atop a hill with panoramic views of the surrounding olive groves, vineyards and fields. Inside, visitors can wander through the upper and lower courtyards, while admiring the high walls, the round towers, the arched ceilings and the octagonal rooms with the characteristic alcoves. While the interior of the castle is relatively empty, the surrounding area offers plenty of opportunities for exploration. From the rooftop terraces, visitors can take in the views of the surrounding countryside. Nearby, there are a number of smaller villages and historical sites that are worth visiting, including the ruins of a Roman amphitheater near Andria. The area also offers a wide range of activities for outdoor enthusiasts, with an array of hiking and biking trails, wineries, and beautiful beaches. Castel del Monte is an enchanting destination, both for history buffs and nature lovers alike.
