Guides Castel del Monte

Castel el Monte, guided walking tours with local guides. Castel del Monte (UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Considered the most important medieval monument of Southern Italy. A charming place located in the municipality of Andria (BAT) and which is still full of mysteries. Declared by UNESCO Patrimony of Humanity in 1996. It is the most famous monument built during the era of Emperor Frederick II Hohenstaufen of Swabia. Its uniqueness is in the octagonal shape. Probably was built by Emperor not for defensive purposes but to celebrate his temporal power. Each element built responds to particular astronomical and algebraic rules. In the centuries when the architecture transmitted coded messages, curious is the constant presence in this castle of the number 8.
