Storia comune di Vieste provincia di Foggia

The territory was inhabited since the Palaeolithic period. It was part of the Roman Empire and then it was under Byzantines and Longobards. With Normans and Swabians it was a flourishing town, though it suffered lots of Saracens’ invasions: in 1554 the pirate Dragut Rais beheaded more than 5000 people on a stone called for this reason “bitter stone” (chianca amara”), still guarded in the Cathedral. Later it was under the Anjous and then the Bourbons until the Unification of Italy. From the 60’s Vieste started to grow in the tourism field welcoming nowadays lots of visitors especially from England and Germany.

Informazioni turistiche comune di Vieste provincia di Foggia

Clear sea, golden beaches, rocky bays, marine grottoes and delicious food: this is Vieste. It stands in the northern Garagano promontory and it is one of the favourite destinations of tourists coming in Apulia thanks to its sandy beaches and excellent accommodations (in fact it received the FEE Blue Flag award). “Pizzomunno” is the symbol of the city: it is a 25 meters limestone pinnacle standing isolated few meters off the mainland. Walking around the historic centre is a pleasant experience especially in summertime because the whitewashed alleyways, thanks to  the handcrafts shops, restaurants and cafés, offer a lively atmosphere, in the morning as late at night. The town is also significant for some buildings as the Castle, ordered by Frederick II, and the Cathedral with its typical Apulia Romanesque style. Vieste it’s the perfect destination for sport-lovers: it is part of the Gargano National Park where you can go trekking, biking, horse-riding following various paths; for water-sports-lovers Vieste’s windswept coast offers facilities for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. From the fully-equipped tourist harbour it is possible to reach the wonderful Tremiti Islands and Croatia as well.
