Castel Del Monte

(Castle of the Mount) is a 13th-century castle situated in Andria in the Apulia region of southern Italy. Octagonal towers and walls make this an unusual design connected with the mystical power of eight being beyond time*.

A formidable looking building John.
John Prior: Thanks Les
It is a great looking castle John...it seems that eight is a significant number in many cultures....
to the Chinese the number eight is a very lucky number ....it is very prestigious for the people to own a house at No. 8 on any street....petersmile
John Prior: Thanks Peter, also 8 becomes infinity.
