Day 7-Bari (Italy)

The old town of Bari is a labyrinth of narrow streets. More than 40 churches and 120 relics are concentrated in this small area.
Life here is reminiscent of old Italian cinema: mummies busy preparing homemade pasta right on the street, elderly seniors playing cards in front of the icons of the Virgin Mary, young curly teens chasing the ball and this is fully justified.
The Swabian castle is located in the center of the Apulian capital, between the old part of the city and the sea, in a strategic location. It is a vivid example of medieval architecture and one of the most interesting and grand castles in the region. Built by the Normans, destroyed and rebuilt by King Frederick II, in 1500 the castle was fortified with ramparts and a wide moat on only three sides, because the fourth side was protected by the sea. In the XIX century, the Swabian castle was used as a prison and military barracks. Today it houses the Department for the Preservation of the Architectural and Historical Treasures of Puglia, as well as a museum of plaster casts.
