San Giovanni Rotondo
San Giovanni Rotondo is a charming village located in the province of Foggia.
The town is world-famous because it houses the remains of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, who lived here for a long part of his life.
Among the main monuments are the old Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the new Basilica designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano, whose recent construction was necessary to accommodate the millions of faithful who come to the Gargano every year.
To be combined with a full-day visit to San Giovanni Rotondo, there is the visit to the nearby Monte Sant’Angelo, declared a Unesco site in 2011, whose Sanctuary dedicated to the Archangel Michael and the Sacred Grotto below, together with the Castle, the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions are mandatory stops on this tour.
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.
A typical product of San Giovanni Rotondo is bread, while Monte Sant’Angelo is famous for its stuffed hosts and neretto wine.
