Castel del Monte (Italian for "Castle of the Mountain"; Barese: Castídde d'u Monte)
is a 13th-century citadel and castle situated in Andria in the
Apulia region of southeast Italy.
It stands on a promontory, where it was constructed during the 1240s by the Emperor Frederick II,
who had inherited the lands from his mother Constance of Sicily.
In the 18th century, the castle's interior marbles and remaining furnishings were removed.
It has neither a moat nor a drawbridge and some considered it never
to have been intended as a defensive fortress; however, archaeological work has suggested
that it originally had a curtain wall.
Described by the Enciclopedia Italiana as "the most fascinating castle built by Frederick II",
the site is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
It also appears on the Italian version of the one-cent euro coin.
