Palace of Don Diego of Mendoza
This 14C palazzo is home to the cellar where, according to tradition, the Barletta challenge (la disfida di Barletta) was issued in 1503 by Italian knights accused of cowardice by their French colleagues. 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.
