The origins of Andria go back to prehistoric times. Later it became an important station on the Trajan Way. During the Norman domination defensive walls were built and the Norman Peter I decreed it a diocese.
The medieval Cathedral of Andria is dedicated to Our Lady of Assumption and was built between 1438 and 1463. The tombs of two wives of Frederick II are kept inside this church.
Other interesting places to see are the Ducal Palace, the Church of San Domenico (1398), the Church of Sant'Agostino, founded in 1200, and the Church of San Francesco (1230-1346), rebuilt in Baroque style in the XVIII century.
Near Andria lies one of the most famous castle of Puglia: Castel del Monte.
