Palace of Don Diego of Mendoza

Tradition has it that it was in the ground floor "cantina" of this Palace in 1503 that the Italian knights issued their French colleagues, who had accused them of cowardice, the challenge of Barletta. This incident went on to become what is now the model of Italian patriotism and Ettore Fieramosca the man who issued the challenge has been a national hero ever since. A little further, you will notice the lavish baroque façade of the palace della Marra.
