Loved the way this castle was periodically modified to keep up with changing weapons technology we swept through the courtyards and salons to see the remains of medieval frescoes.

This is a huge castle set in the old part of Barletta city overlooking the sea. It has been wonderfully maintained, full of old manuscripts, stone relics and artworks. There is an amazing subterranean area with a natural ‘soundbox’ in one room. Don’t miss this!

it is a castle, but mostly used for exhibitions. impressive from outside but not so much inside. views from castle towards sea is of industrial port. town itself was the least impressive I saw in my stay in Puglia.

When you are in barletta and you visit the city centre, you will notice, as in all italian cities a fusion of history and modernism. The castello is a stop in the history within the modern vibs of the city.

Not only is this one of the great Federican castles of the area (well-preserved/restored, sensationally large) it is so much more than a collection of walls. It hosts the local art museum (art made by people from Barletta, or art made in Barletta) and that's...More

We arrived on the 4th of May to be told that the inside is under renovations and won't be open for maybe another month. So we just strolled around the outside.
