Bari\'s Swabian Castle

The manor
of the city of Bari.

‹ Indietro

The Norman Swabian Castle of Bari is the symbolic fortification of Bari, seat of the Superintendence for the Architectural and Historical Heritage of Apulia. Located in defense of the main entrance of the city, a few steps from the Cathedral, today welcomes visitors before entering the alleys of the historic center.

Built by the Normans in the twelfth century, destroyed in 1156 and then rebuilt by Frederick II between 1233 and 1240, the manor is one of the most interesting fortifications in the region, especially thanks to its strategic position. Fascinating witness of medieval construction, the Castle shows numerous extensions attributable to successive eras. Exhibitions and shows are periodically organized inside the Castle. Archeology enthusiasts can also visit the Gipsoteca which contains casts of ornamental sculptures in use from the eleventh to the seventeenth century.
