Full description
It is impossible to miss one of the most emblematic symbols of the city of Bari, the Norman-Swabian Castle, an imposing fortress dating back to the 13th century, now turned into a museum. With its extensive moat it overlooks the gates of Bari Vecchia, flanking the perimeter of the city, which was defended by it since the Roman times. To the defensive function, the Normans added the monitoring of the territory. Afterwards, as the seat of the court of Isabella of Aragon, the Castle acquired a Renaissance style and was completed with the defensive wall, the corner bastions, the drawbridge and the quadrangular courtyard. The complete tour of the Castle (inside and outside) comes with the access to the Gipsoteca, an interesting collection of Romanesque sculptures and plaster casts, which reflect the details of the most important monuments of Puglia, from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century.
