Through the Castles of the Capitanata district we will learn that this is a historically rich land. As exemplars of the Medieval past, it indeed hosts some of the most majestic and best preserved castles of the reign of Frederick II such as Castel Fiorentino of Torremaggiore, the Castle of Lucera, the Castle of Manfredonia and the Castle of Monte Sant’Angelo.
A land rich in history and archaeological finds that describe the ancient cultures that populated the Promontory during the centuries. Some of the finds date back to the Upper Palaeolithic age such as for example the Paglicci cave where ancient religious rites and customs come back to light. The excavations of Castel Fiorentino have brought back to light the domus federiciana with the evident marks of the demolitions and reconstructions carried out during the Angevin period.
On the Gargano Promontory you will find many fresh local products such as tomatoes, asparagus and other vegetables often used for local dishes, the famous preserves or for the famous vegetables packed in olive oil.
Exploring and discovering the coast of the Gargano promontory means getting lost among its wonderful caves, taking a rest near the lakes surrounded by vegetation in the National Park of the Gargano, rediscovering the sea and the bays of the Tremiti Islands, as well as the wonderful beaches and the trabucchi (local wooden constructions once used for fishing) typical of the Gargano coast.
Thanks to the National Park of the Gargano and to the structure of the promontory you will have the opportunity to set out to discover the flora and fauna typical of this area, admiring their spectacular colour effects. The sea wraps around the mountains, whose tops are coloured green by high woods, and enters the deep creeks and caves of spectacular shapes. You will enjoy the peace of the mountains and the relaxation of the sea by immersing in nature, far away from the noise and stress of the city.
