MANFREDONIA Foggia (Puglia)
Sun and sea, Nature and welness

Storia comune di Manfredonia provincia di Foggia

The place name comes from Manfredi, son of Frederick II. According to the legend Diomedes, a Greek mythology hero, founded the old Siponto. It was inhabited by Byzantines, Longobards, Saracens, Normans and Swabians, but in 13th century an earthquake turned that place into an unhealthy marsh. So Manfredi built up a new town few km away from the marsh. Then Anjous, Aragoneses, Turks and Spanish fought for this place because of its strategic position overlooking the sea and because of its still enchanting beauty.
