The octagonal size of the castle dominates one of the higher hills of the Western Murgia to south of Andria. Not there are documents that testify the age of construction of Castel of the Mount: a letter that Federico II sended 28 February from Gubbio to Riccardo di Montefuscolo, Commanded Earth xecutioner of, test that was of the jobs around to 1240. The castle, constructed probably from local architects, nacque like dwelling and not like fortress. Indeed the structure is unprovided of defense works which ditch. In 1876 it was acqustato from the State when it was reduced little more than rudere; from then numerous participations of restoration they have interested the complex assuring, between the other, the static consolidation of the structure. Today the castle has repurchased its ancient splendor.
