“Norman castle in very good shape”

Museo Nazionale Archeologico di Gioia del Colle
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 September 2015

As an addict of castles, ot really of museums, I concentrated on the outer walls and the amazing Piazzetta in front of the entrance. Justly this small castle is the proudness of the inhabitants of Gioia. In the inner court a beautiful staircase leads the eyes to the amazing windows. As for a lot of Puglian castles, the buildings around are too close to get a really interesting view on the castle in general.

I took a group of Americans to Puglia, Italy in May 2014.
The museum is a real treasure hidden in a quaint town of Gioia del Colle, Puglia, Italy. I was so surprised to find so much beauty. The Museum guide has a degree in archeology, he was the extra unexpected treat. He gave us a taste of his knowledge and it was a delight to listen to him. I could have spent more and more hours listening to him.
I recommend this Museum highly, a visit not to miss.

Very cheap to visit, it's interesting if you take your time to read everything there. Not 5 stars because they don't have everything written in English.
The stories surrounding the castle are very nice indeed.
There is also a small part with some old vases and other tools.

Museum housed in the ancient 12th Century Norman Castle in Gioia del Colle. The museum is a small area on the ground floor, but the main reason for a visit is the castle itself with its magnificent throne room and external staircase leading to the first floor. Although there is a fee for entering, in common with many sites in Italy those of pension age gain free access.
