Castel del Monte, a UNESCO Heritage site, was built by the great emperor Frederick II and then called Stupor Mundi. The castle was built on a hill in the Parco Nazionale dell’Alta Murgia. For its mysterious octagonal plan, used as astronomical observatory or maybe just as hunting manor, it is different from all other castles in Apulia.

Following, Trani will charm you with its wonderful Cathedral of San Nicola Pellegrino, an example of Apulian Romanesque architecture, its two crypts consecrated to San Nicola and Santa Maria and its hypogeum of San Leucio. You will see the Swabian Castle (only the outside), a majestic fort of Frederick II, and the small alleyways of the Jewish neighborhood “Giudecca”, rich of old synagogues and small workshops. At the end of the tour, tasting of the Moscato, a typical sweet wine made in Trani.
It is a dessert wine with a strong territorial character perfect with the traditional local pastry.
