Further information

Since 1996, UNESCO has recognized the Castel del Monte as a World Heritage Site.This alone should be enough to visit this wonderful place; located in the homonymous village of Andria, it just cannot be missed. We do however want to make the experience even more unique and unforgettable, so we’ve organized the excursion in such a way that you get to share the emotions and magic of the place with others, in a delightful walk between mystery and adventure. In short, this is the heart of the tour sharing experience at Castel del Monte. Wanted by Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Sicily, the fortress offers numerous pearls of history, mysteries and symbols. Its octagonal shape, which makes it unique in its kind, is emblematic of its symbolism. The octagon embodies the union of two geometric shapes, the circle and the square, one symbolizing the heaven and the other the earth. Even though the reason as to why the castle was built is not clear, it is in some ways the transition between the earth and the heavens; just like what happens when you fuse two geometric shapes together to create something new.
