The St. Mary of Assumption Cathedral is the bury place of the two wives of the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II who built just outside the city the famous World Heritage castle called Castel del Monte. The cathedral dates back to the Normans age but the portico was added afterwards. It features a remarkable rose window and a campanile surmounted by a steeple.
