World Heritage Site Pictures - Castel Del Monte, Puglia, Italy { 26 images } Created 10 Nov 2012

Pictures of the medieval UNESCO World Heritage site of Castel Del Monte ( Castle on the Mount ) situated in Adria in the Apulia region in southern Italy. Castel Del Monte was given its world heritage status for the following reasons : "When the Emperor Frederick II built this castle near Bari in the 13th century, he imbued it with symbolic significance, as reflected in the location, the mathematical and astronomical precision of the layout and the perfectly regular shape. A unique piece of medieval military architecture, Castel del Monte is a successful blend of elements from classical antiquity, the Islamic Orient and north European Cistercian Gothic."
In its formal perfection and its harmonious blending of cultural elements from northern Europe, the Muslim world, and classical antiquity, Castel del Monte is a unique masterpiece of medieval military architecture, reflecting the humanism of its founder, Frederick II of Hohenstaufen.

Our picture gallery of photos of Castel del Monte celebrate this imposing and beautifully restored medieval castle with images that show it in its full glory.
