Tourist itineraries
From the Gargano National Park (territory , beaches , local products) to the Tremiti islands , from the millenary convents (Stignano, Calena, Pulsano, S. Maria Maggiore) to the most ancient caves that saw man open onto civilization (Grotta Paglicci, Grotta San Michele, Dolina Pozzatina), from forests (Foresta Umbra, Vico del Gargano) to lakes (Crocifisso di Varano), from the Appennine to historical towns such as Lucera and Troia, San Severo with its palaces and churches in late-baroque style, the Wine Road of Daunia, this is all our territory offers to the visitor, together with Mediterranean gastronomy and hospitality unique in the world.

San Severo is located in the northern part of capitanata, at the confluence of ancient and modern itineraries with the close Gargano and the Daunia Subappenine. The site of the town was dwelt since ancient times, as the finds in the local Archeological Museum show, but the first nucleus of the historical centre should go back to the high Middle Age. In the 13th century San Severo reached a notable importance and its wine is already considered the best in the area; besides rare wheat and very good olive oil are produced. In the 16th century San Severo, royal town, mint its own coin and it becames Diocese seat, but it is in the 18th century that the built-up area acquires a new aspect with the building of palaces, churches and splendid monasteries in late-baroque style that represent together with the wine, the main interest pole for a visit to this prosperous Apulian town.
