Tour details:

Just 10 km from the Umbra forest, in the heart of the Gargano, stands Vico del Gargano, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The guided tour will make you discover the two districts Civita and Casale and the main places of interest such as the church Matrice with its bell tower and, inside the altar dedicated to St. Valentine, patron saint of the town. Within walking distance you will visit the churches of St. Joseph, St. Mark, St. Mary of the Angels with the convent of the Capuchins and St. Peter. The historic center still partially retains its walls which have become, in part, houses. After a few steps you will reach the castle of quadrangular form, probably Norman edification, has undergone changes already under Frederick II who converted it into Domus and then, later, occupied by the Aragonese. The tour continues with the external visit of Palazzo della Bella, designed on the model of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, a neo-Gothic current. Very beautiful are the wooden doors, with unusual shapes and stone portals.
The tour ends with a visit to the Museo Trappeto Maratea, an ancient olive oil mill from the 14th century carved into the rock. Inside you will visit two areas: in one there are the wooden presses for the pressing of the olives, the mill, and other useful tools for the production of oil and for agricultural work; in the other, you can see a tank for oil, a warehouse and a barn.
