Predominantly agricultural area alternating fields of wheat, olive trees and vines with small towns of considerable artistic interest. Barletta, famous for the “challenge” of 1503 between Italian and French that is remembered every year in a historical re-enactment in February, retains the Colossus, a huge statue dating from the fifth century that probably depicts the Roman Emperor Theodosius II; impressive is the castle of the twelfth century, in addition to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore. Near the town is located the archaeological site of the Battle of Cannae, where there was the defeat of the Romans by the Carthaginian general Hannibal. Emblem of Andria, and perhaps the whole Apulia is Castel del Monte, a castle built by Frederick II of Swabia and located on a hill. The castle was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, has eight towers and is located in one of the most beautiful places of the Murgia, the National Park of Alta Murgia. The visit of Canosa allows you to jump back in time more than two thousand years, in fact on its territory can be found remains of ancient necropolis with underground rooms used for various functions such as tombs, mausoleums for the funeral arts that have made this city one of the most important archaeological sites in Puglia. Returning to the coast, which has sandy in the north in the province while it is rocky in the south, we find Margherita di Savoia with its salt marshes, the most important in Europe and second in the world in size. Going south is Trani that as architectural excellence presents the Swabian Castle and the Cathedraldedicated to St. Nicholas. For a holiday food and wine are not to forget the wine roads DOC Moscato di Trani and Castel del Monte in addition to the road of extra virgin olive oil of Castel del Monte.
