Palace of Don Diego of Mendoza
On the ground floor of the Palazzo di Don Diego de Mendoza is the "Cantina della Disfida", where legend has it that the Barletta Challenge (Disfida di Barletta) was issued in 1503 by Italian knights accused of cowardice by their French colleagues. This incident would become the model of Italian patriotism, and Ettore Fieramosca, the man who issued the challenge, has been a national hero ever since.
