Monuments and archaeological sites
The promontory has been inhabited since prehistoric times, later by Dauni, Romans and later dominated by populations from every part of Europe, following all the historical vicissitudes of the Kingdom of Naples.
All these different cultures are now visible in the monuments and archaeological sites of the villages and landscapes of the Gargano.
One of the places of reference is, of course, the holy in cave of San Michele Arcangelo (UNESCO), a monumental complex that has been a destination for pilgrimages for more than 1000 years, even though ancient routes crossing Europe and Italy (Via Francigena / Micaelica).
Isolated abbeys, necropolis, hermitages, prehistoric caves, coastal towers and “trabucchi” are some of the sites of remarkable beauty and suggestion that can be discovered by exploring the Mountain of the Sun.
