The castle is big and beautiful form outside. Inside is empty. You walk through the empty rooms. There is nothing to see beside the sea.

This very large and imposing building is empty of everything other than a few signs of explanation in English. When we visited it also had an exhibition of modern art which seemed completely out of place. Not really worth the entrance fee

The castle is in pretty good conditions and it has some interesting architectural elements. It would be nice though to have some exhibits in the large empty rooms.

The castle looks interesting from the outside but inside it is a different story. Lots of empty rooms with the occasional nice view of the sea. For many years it was a prison and hopefully in the future it will be an attraction worth visiting....More

The castle has been renovated and is beautiful from the outside. It is located on the sea and close to the Cathedral. Not much to see inside and it is currently a woman's prison. A gem built by Frederick II.

Unique location castle by the sea. Medieval structure, historical and cultural treasure of Trani. Extremely helpful woman at the ticket office also happens to give amazing suggestions for books and cultural events in the proximity area.
