The great emperor Frederick II, defined Stupor Mundi, is the "father" of Castel del Monte since 1996 inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage monuments. The extraordinary fortress is today nestled on a gentle green hill 20 kilometers from Andria, set in the Alta Murgia National Park. The mysterious octagonal plan of the manor, perhaps used as an astronomical observatory or imposing hunting manor, differs significantly in its structure from all the other castles in Puglia. Castel del Monte holds splendid mythological creatures, such as decorations in the keystones of the inner rooms and rich frames in coral breccia in the doors.
