Village Baia Turchese
Gargano in the Heart of Apulia

Known more as a tourist destination or a place visited by pilgrims than as a natural park, Gargano means sun, white houses and holidays; here there are beautiful villages such as Peschici, Vieste, the Foresta Umbra, the Tremiti Islands, among the most amazing places to be visited in Italy. This area of the Puglia Region has also a rich biodiversity, due to its morphological structure and to its history.

When the Appennines started to rise, hundreds of millions of years ago, the Gargano there was not yet, it was only an island. Later, it joined the country by giving life to the typical "spur" of Italy. The islander origins of the promontory has the same influenced its evolution: green areas, a lot of coasta lakes, islands, stones... It is a really rich and various habitat, not so common in Italy. A puzzle of different settings in a very little space that makes the Gargano more like and island than a mount, that is only 1.065 meters high.


One of the most beautiful and typical places on the Gargano promontory that worth a visit are the grottos, with their names and histories: the Grotta Campana, the one of the "Contrabbandieri", the Grotta Sfondata, among Vieste and Mattinata, are hidden and wet by the clear waters of the sea...

San Giovanni Rotondo

The Gargano promontory is also a religious destination. In San Giovanni Rotondo there is indeed the tomb of Padre Pio and the Sanctuary planned by the famous architect Renzo Piano. Not so far there are the luxuriant Foresta Umbra and the Gargano National Park, with their rich flora and fauna.
