Manfredonia is located at the foot of the Gargano, and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Gargano’.
Its main tourist attractions are the marvellous Swabian-Angevin Castle and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo Maiorano, inside which is the icon of the Madonna di Siponto, a wooden statue of the cross-eyed Virgin known as ‘la Sipontina’.
The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, on the other hand, is a jewel of Apulia Romanesque art, built in the first half of the 11th century. Today, behind it, numerous visitors can admire an original modern installation in wire mesh, created by Edoardo Tresoldi, which redesigns the original volumes of the ancient basilica. Upon request, it will also be possible to visit the Abbey of San Leonardo in Lama Volara and the hypogea of Capparelli di Siponto, an archaeological site of immense historical and artistic value.
Our idea is to combine an itinerary of your choice with the possibility of tasting some of the area’s gastronomic excellences through our original Percorsi Golosi and Eno Percorsi.
Traditional Sipontine dishes: Farrata di Manfredonia, a spelt focaccia (to which the town dedicates a famous festival in February).
