Bastione di Santo Stefano

Overview

The bastion of Santo Stefano in Apulia was built from 1537 by order of Charles V to enclose the right bank of the Bozzetta stream and to defend the port of Bozzetta. From this bastion, a section of the city wall ran from the west side of the city to the Castel del Monte fortress, sat atop a hill in the city of Andria. The bastion was partially demolished to make way for new constructions. Today, you can only view one section along the Via del Macello Vecchio.
