Castle of Trani


One of Southern Italy’s Swabian castles, the Castle of Trani was the place where Manfred of Sicily (son of Frederick II) celebrated his wedding to Helena Angelina Doukaina.

One of the most interesting Swabian castles that Frederick II built in Southern Italy, the Castle of Trani stands by the sea in defense of the city.

The Castle is famous as the site where Manfred of Sicily, son of Frederick II of Swabia, chose to celebrate his wedding to Princess Elena d’Epiro (Helena Angelina Doukaina of Epirus). It retains its historic fascination, whilst also telling of knightly legends that have been passed down to us through the generations.

Nowadays, the Castle hosts many events, particularly during summer, including an evocative reenactment of Manfred’s wedding that recreates the medieval atmosphere of the time.
