Storia comune di Cerignola provincia di Foggia

Its origins are unsure. Its name comes from Ceres, the goddess of growing plants, or from “Ceriniola”, the city destroyed by Alexander the Molossian, king of Epirus. Probably the town was founded in Roman times (as shown by a milestone still situated where an important roman way passed through), but it gained its importance only with Normans and Anjous. On April 28th 1503 in Cerignola took place an important historic battle between French and Spanish fighting for the Kingdom of Naples. From 1611 to 1700 the Pignatelli family gave a great boost to the development of the farming activities still thriving nowadays.

Informazioni turistiche comune di Cerignola provincia di Foggia

Cerignola is the widest town and the biggest farming centre of Apulia: farming is definitely its most important activity. Here is where “Bella di Cerignola” is widely produced: it is a famous kind of olive, now a PDO product. And here is where you can find old underground wheat stores, a sort of ditches where, in the past as nowadays, wheat is still put away. The town stands on a hill overlooking the Tavoliere plain and presents an historical centre where different ages’ features are well mixed together. In the neighbourhood there is “Il Monte”, an interesting nature reserve.
