The Swabian Castle of Brindisi is a manor in the heart of the city, also known as the castle of land, built by Frederick II in 1227 and probably built using materials from older buildings. The numerous changes that have affected the building are related to people of particular relevance to the history of Italy and Puglia, such as Charles of Habsburg, who in 1519 became emperor with the name of Charles fifth and definitively reinforced the structure. During the Second World War, between September 1943 and February 1944, the castle was the residence of King Vittorio Emanuele III, Queen Elena and Marshal Badoglio who on their flight from Rome established their base here promoting Brindisi as temporary capital of Italy . Currently the castle is used as a Navy Command.
