Storia comune di Isole Tremiti provincia di Foggia

There are different stories about the place name. Maybe those part of land detached from Gargano promontory after an earthquake (“tremetus” or “trimerus”) o maybe formerly there were made of three mountains (“tre monti” in Italian). In the past they were called “Diomedes Islands”: after Troy’s destruction Diomedes, a Greek mythology hero, set up in Gargano area and in Tremiti Islands he died. During the 4th and 3rd centuries BC they were used as a prison. In the 9th century Benedictine monks from Montecassino founded an abbey. In 1334 they suffered the Saracens’ invasions and they were inhabited again in 1412 by other religious factions. In 1783 Ferdinand IV of Naples converted the abbey into a prison until 1843 when it was inhabited by some people coming from Naples.
