The castle looks great from the outside and the adjusted city park is nice as well. Definitely worth to visit. The castle also have a museum/art gallery with very interesting pieces displayed. Great view from the top and an interesting ground floor/dungeon.

This zone of Puglia is well-known for various medieval castles. One of them is located in Barletta. It's approximately 1 hour walk around with a nice view from the top.
