"A smorgasbord of alien cultures If you want to get in touch with the roughness of the Nordic aliens, you can come to the Norman castle Castello Normanno-Svevo. Walking into the castle, I seemed to see the legendary Norman Roger II built the Castello Normanno-Svevo castle, and later the castle was rebuilt in the hands of the same legendary German Frederick. The castle built by two generations of legends not only did not lose its magnificence, but also added a lot of features. It made me feel the unique charm of the combination of two legendary cultures. After countless years, the castle has received many cultural relics from different regions and cultures, most of which come from the southern region, just like a hundred flowers bloom in China! I not only felt the Greek customs, but also the Gothic style, smelled the Byzantines, touched the traces of the Arabs, and saw the glorious testimony of the Normans. Different exotic customs are mixed here, which makes me hard to express. In the castle, I leaned against the human head and animal body, behind which there was a pair of winged stone sculptures, and saw broken dishes, which seemed to be used for divination or for holding water. There are also stone carvings of strange species with different imaginations of ancient foreign races, as well as portraits of ancient characters. I stroked the mottled city wall, seeming to personally witness the history from generation to generation. Address: Near the old town of Bari in Puglia.
