Fodor's Review

While in Vieste, take a look at the massive walls of Castello Svevo. Originally built by Frederick II, it was enlarged by the Spanish to defend against attacks from the Turks, and it has remained a military base ever since. It is only open to the public for guided visits May‒September and for temporary exhibitions and events; call ahead for the latest information.
