Castel del Monte in Andria in Apulia is a 13th Century castle and a Unesco World Heritage Site. 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.
