Storia comune di San Giovanni Rotondo provincia di Foggia

The town was founded in 1095: some catacombs and the round baptistery dates back to that days. The round baptistery, previously dedicated to Janus (the two-faced god) was later dedicated to Saint John: that’s the place-name’s origin (“rotondo” means “round” in italian). Throughout the Middle ages San Giovanni Rotondo was an important administrative centre for South Italy. The latest history is almost identified with the life and miracles of Saint Pio.


Informazioni turistiche comune di San Giovanni Rotondo provincia di Foggia

San Giovanni Rotondo is a very popular place of worship. It spreads out from the highest Gargano mountainside to the Tavoliere plain so that its winters are cold and summers are warm. The town is part of the Gargano National Park and shows a very interesting wildlife. You’re in the right place if you want to spend a healthy holiday, far away from stressful metropolis. In summertime you can also reach the Gargano coast beaches, not so distant from the town. A spirit hovers above San Giovanni Rotondo: Saint Pio from Pietrelcina’s spirit. The Saint had been living here from 1916 to 1968 in Santa Maria delle Grazie convent and he’s the “patron” of a big hospital, one of the most important hospitals in Italy. In 2004 was open the Padre Pio Pilgrimage Church, designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano. Nowadays San Giovanni Rotondo runs for “Slow city”, that means to join the International Network of Good Living Cities.
