One thing not miss here
The triple mullioned window looking towards "fidelis Andria".
Stayed at
Nowhere. We stopped during a journey coming home to Rome.
Ate at
El Puerto, Trani. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with a very dear friend.

The Italian novelist Diletta Nicastro visited in a very hot day in July the mysterious Castel del Monte, one of Italy’s pearls (portrayed in the Italian 1 euro/cent coin). The castle was constructed during the 1240s by the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire Frederick II. It is considered one of the most enigmatic monuments of the Italian architecture. Castel del Monte was listed in the World Heritage in 1996.

Impressive. Intriguing. Puzzling. #mozzafiato
