Cylindrical in shape, typical of the watch towers, the Angevin Tower of Bitonto differs from the defense towers which are generally quadrangular in shape. However, some theories want this construction to perform both functions. Written traces that speak of the structure can be found in the document of the wife of Charles III of Durazzo, which shows that the building dates back to the last thirty years of the fourteenth century. Silent witness of an illustrious past, the tower teems with culture thanks to the works of the Civic Gallery of Contemporary Art, housed inside the mighty walls.
