From the name of its founder, King Manfredi, who in 1256 transferred the entire population of Siponto, giving birth toManfredonia. With its large port and a vast industrial area that surrounds it, today Manfredonia is the only city of the Gargano that centres its economy around the fishing and industrial sectors. In the last years the Carnival celebrations organized by Manfredonia have become a huge attraction, animated by allegorical floats,parades of characters linked to the local and Italian traditions of carnival and with the unfailing participation of the sipontina costume"Ze' Peppe".
The second largest comune in the Foggia province for the population of inhabitants, the city strives on fishing and trade, but above all industry and tourism are the factors that have largely made an indent on the economic development of the zone. Due to the development of the large Enichem plant, today the city seems to offer itself to tourism with the utmost availability and fantasy.
It is a pleasure to wander about the ancient village, to take a walk along the waterfront and to enter the port where a thousand boats paint a beautiful picture having blue sea as a backdrop. The port is a vital element for the local economy. Also they don‚??t lack, holiday camps and camp sites for those who love to live in contact with nature.
