Federico second included it among the castles of the Giustizierato of the Land of Bari. The castle of Barletta, built by the Normans in the second half of the twelfth century, preserves the history of the city where in the past centuries the famous «challenge» was disputed. The various dominations that have occurred over time have left traces of their passage with interventions that testify to the important role that the structure played.
