Castel del Monte, Unesco site

Castel del Monte, a mystic and stunnig castle, Unesco site, built by Emperor Frederick II, called the Stupor Mundi.

More than a mere defensive structure, the Castel del Monte was built to impress. The Holy Roman Emperor, Fredrick II, built the unusual and imposing castelloon a low hill in the Apulian plains. The entire area was once heavily wooded and it was said that Frederick was an avid hunter and these were his favorite grounds.

He sprinkled the areas of Puglia and Basilicata regions with castles, each one different; but Castel del Monte is by far the most eccentric of them all.
