Piazza Federico II, Bari, Italy, 70122
The original nucleus of this castle, which is the current quadrangular belt with angular towers, dates from the Norman-Swabian era. During the destruction of Bari in 1156 by Guglielmo ill Malo, the castle suffered notable damage. Around 1233, Federico II restored it and built a monumental portal and a portico along the perimeter of the internal courtyard. Later, in the 16th Century, walls were built on three sides of the building, transforming it into an organic, harmonious construction worthy of the court of Isabella of Aragon and Bona Sforza.
