DESCRIPTION: 
The Castle takes us back to medieval times, when Ruvo was a fierce fortress: in fact its construction can be traced back to the early years of the year one thousand. In 1129 it was already occupied by Ruggiero who besieged the entire city. During the Norman domination it was then assigned to the county of Conversano to be subsequently granted in 1620 to the De Colants. It belonged to the De Juriaco and then to the Counts of Terlizzi. In the first half of the 14th century it was abandoned and therefore neglected. It was Sanseverino who had it restored before being sold to the Ruffo, Balzo, Orsini de Requesciens, Carafa Families. The latter took particular care of the castle together with the towers and walls. In 1501 the French army conquered Ruvo by settling in the manor and from here, two years later, the 13 French knights departed and faced as many Italians in the Challenge of Barletta. Feudality abolished, the castle was sold to various owners. What remains of the castle is an important and vast fortified complex which for over 600 years (from 1000 to 1600) was a stronghold of many dominations. Even today in the central Piazza Matteotti, the bastion stands out over the surrounding buildings with a mullioned window and mullioned windows (now walled up) scattered along the four sides. What we offer for sale is a unique piece that represents a commendable historical symbol for the whole local and national history. The solution is divided on two levels with an internal staircase and very high vaults so as to hypothesize different housing units. The castle has undergone important works aimed at completely consolidating the entire structure. It is in good general condition and remains to be completed as needed. For the historical sources we made use of some articles in the gazetta del mezzogiorno ad pera by dr. Angelo Tedone. The property currently has two large rooms of about 200 square meters each with a rectangular shape and 6m vaults. We have thought of some restructuring hypotheses. Two luxurious duplex style apartments.
