Castel del Monte via Altamura : (total travel time 2hrs 15 minutes)

This is a full day trip towards the north of Puglia, via some country roads and the town of Altamura.

This roadtrip takes you through some of the lovely countryside of Puglia, Parco Nazionale di Gravina, with a stopping off point of the town of Altramura, famous for its bread.

The destination though is …Castel del Monte a UNESCO heritage site, and a 13th century hunting lodge built by the Emperor Frederick II . It dominates the landscape with fantastic views over the Puglian landscape.

It is a unique building in Europe, octagonal in shape, a beautiful place, and a must for any visit to Puglia.
