the surroundings

On the westside of the Promontorio del Gargano lies a plain, the Tavoliere, which forms the connection with the mainland of Italy. The centuries of isolation of the Gargano preserved the very own caracter of the area, notable by the the caracter of its inhabitants, the remains of the ancient past and the very rich flora and fauna of area.

The history of this land dates back till far

before the greek colonies from around 600 B.C.

In the Stone Age the area was a main source of flintstone.

Medieval castle grounds sometimes containing greek/roman archeological sites (right pictue: Castello Lucera) and a lot of magnificant romanistic churches reflect a rich feodal past.

The natural area Parco del Gargano contains the most rich and divers flora and fauna of the whole of Italy. A more than 10.000 hectares large wood at 600-900 meters above sea level is a luxuriant oasis of tranquility.

The National Parc of Gargano has its own website:

After a walk in the Foresta Umbra the many restaurants in the area can serve exclusive fresh fish after the Garganese tradition, but you must not forget the pizza's from the real forno's (woodstoves). You will never taste pizza's again back home!

A boattrip to the nearby Tremiti Islands or to the coast-caves from Rodi, Peschici or Vieste will be a unforgettable experience.

On the website www.tuttogargano.com you ‘ll find much more information about  all touristical possibilities at the Gargano.
