Looming over Bari’s famous St. Nicolas Cathedral is the Swabian Castle - Castello Normanno-Svevo. The current structure is credited to Roman Emperor Frederick II. It is believed that Normans originally built this castle over the ruins of a Roman Fort. Eventually Frederick II built around it, incorporating the Norman structure into his own design. The two Norman towers can still be seen.

During the 16th Century under the Spanish rule, this became the grand residence of the Spanish royalty. The moat around the castle as well as the corner towers were added around the same time.

A great historical monument, the castle has many stories to share with its visitors.

  • Currently undergoing renovation (April 2015).
  • The audio-guide is a great way to get around the castle.

  • Too cold. Nothing special. Disappointed

  • Nice and interesting castle but with modern atmosphere inside for his furnitures. No security check of your bags when you go inside. Not safe. And...No good if you have strolley, wheelchairs etc... because there are small doors, many stairs. Very uncomfortable.

  • Coming from Ireland, a country where Norman castle are common, I must confess that I was surprised to find a Norman castle here in southern Italy. But that is more a reflection of my lack of historical knowledge. Entrance to the castle gives you access to many rooms containing historical artefacts from the site and surrounding regions. There is a short audiovisual screening in one of the rooms, and if you ask the projectionist, he will change the language to English. The only slight disappointment is that you can't get up onto the castle walls. We were there at sunset, so that would have been nice. Well worth a visit.

  • Beautiful castle from the outside, unfortunately we couldn't check it inside

  • Strong castle with a rich history. They play a very informative film near the beginning (that is available in 4 languages depending on the crowd) about how the castle developed. Inside there's also some art to be seen.
