This 13 th-century fortress on a high hill commanding 360 degree views is interesting in that it has eight towers on its eight sides. The interior courtyard is an octagon and one highlight for me was the mathematical opening to the sky.
Castle Del Monte has an interesting mix of styles with the yellow limestone in the main building and red coral limestone around the doorways and columns.
Large fireplaces, interesting windows that give great views over the countryside, and richly decorated columns give some hints to its former glory.
A macabre sculpture exhibition of skulls, skeletons and body parts added to the interest of our visit.
