Conserva il suo fascino storico, mentre racconta di leggende cavalleresche tramandate di generazione in generazione...
Il Castello Svevo di Trani è spettacolare sia per architettura che per posizione, la sua forma quadrangolare con imponenti torrioni agli apici ricorda i castelli crociati di Terra Santa.
Fu eretto per ordine di Federico II di Svevia, nel 1233, a tutela di quel famoso Regno di Sicilia ereditato da sua madre.
La fortezza sarebbe servita per presidiare al meglio le pericolose acque della costa adriatica: sorge a breve distanza dalla nota Cattedrale, in riva al mare, al centro di una rada i cui bassi fondali costituirono sempre un'ottima difesa sia dalla furia delle onde, che da eventuali attacchi su quel fronte e la spettacolare altezza delle sue torri gli consentivano di sorvegliare l'ingresso del porto e le vie di accesso all'abitato. 
La storia più intensa che caratterizza il Castello Svevo è quella di Elena Comneno, figlia di Michele II Re dell'Epiro che fu destinata alle nozze con Manfredi, figlio prediletto di Federico II. 
I festeggiamenti si svolsero all'interno dello stesso Castello voluto da Federico II, tra sfarzo ed onore.
Attualmente il Castello ospita numerosi eventi, in particolare durante l'estate, tra cui una rievocazione del matrimonio di Manfredi che ricrea l'atmosfera medievale del tempo.
E per questo tour, che mi porta ad ammirare la magnificenza di uno dei più begli esempi di fortificazioni fatte erigere in Puglia, indosso un outfit non è banale né scontato, perchè un pigiama sa essere cool oltre che comodissimo. E poi sembrare come appena scesa dal letto "is the new black"!
(Clicca qui, qui, qui e qui per saperne di più sulla moda pigiama 2018).

On Piazza Manfredi, next to the famous cathedral, is Trani’s castle, Castello Svevo.
Built in 1233 by Frederick II of Swabia, who was the Holy Roman Emperor from 1220 to 1250, the Castle in Trani was constructed on the sea to fulfill the purpose of defending the city.
The manor has a quadrangular shape, with squared towers at the corners and a central courtyard, while on the three sides, toward the ground, was later added the outer wall.
The Castle is famous as the site where Manfred of Sicily, son of Frederick II of Swabia, chose to celebrate his wedding to Princess Elena d’Epiro (Helena Angelina Doukaina of Epirus).
It retains its historic fascination, whilst also telling of knightly legends that have been passed down to us through the generations.
Nowadays, the Castle hosts many events, particularly during summer, including an evocative reenactment of Manfred's wedding that recreates the medieval atmosphere of the time. 
For this trip, which brings me to admire the magnificence of one of the most beautiful examples of fortifications erected in Puglia, I'm wearing an outfit that is not trivial and nor obvious, because a pajama-suit knows how to be cool as well as comfortable. 
And... to look like just-got-out-of-bed "is the new black"
