Half day itinerary

Castel del Monte is a unique monument in the world, in which mathematics and architecture merge. The extraordinary beauty of this medieval manor has made it famous all over the world so as to give it a habitual recognition: to be among the World Heritage Monuments reported and protected by UNESCO. Built around 1240 by Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, this enigmatic monument dominates the territory with its unmistakable shape, an octagon at whose eight corners there are eight towers also octagonal. Although Castel del Monte has been at the center of interest for many years both recognized experts in the sector, both in the press and television, and for esotericism enthusiasts, this fascinating castle has kept its secrets hidden. During our visit to the castle we will visit the 16 rooms that compose it to form almost a labyrinth in which the medieval man could get lost and then find himself.
