#71 Castel del Monte
This is NOT an official Lego site
castle was built and possibly also designed by the
Hohenstaufen Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II in 1240.
Located in the Apulia region of southern Italy, it may
have been the keep for a larger castle that was never
built or served as a hunting lodge. In its current state
it is virtually defenceless. Its octagonal design with
eight octagonal towers and octagonal courtyard is unique.
