Castle of Monte Sant'Angelo

A centuries-old historical tale. The Castle of Monte Sant'Angelo still bears witness to the succession of the many dominations, people and architectual styles. Located in the Gargano National Park, it was originally erected by the Lombards and later on enlarged under Norman rule, with the Giganti and Quadrata tower. Frederick II of Swabia erected, on the other hand, the sala del tesoro (treasury). The present appearance of the castle is mainly due to the influence of the Aragonese, who built the almond-shaped keep and the moat in front of the main gate, in order to make it impregnable to attacks.
