Storia comune di San Severo provincia di Foggia

According to the legend, the town was founded by Diomedes, a Greek mythology hero, who gave it the name of “Castrum Drionis” and it was a pagan town until the bishop of the near village of Siponto decided to entrust Catrm Drionis to the governor Severo. But the history tells that between the Longobards era and the Byzantine era on the Sacra Langobardorum Way a church was built up and then around it a village rose up with the name of Sancti Severini to honour Norico Severini, an abbot precursor of Saint Benedict. The village was on the way to Monte Sant'Angelo, thus it was full of people and traders and that's why it grew up until the 1500 when it became capital of Capitanata and Molise. In 1600 it suffered years of decay, but it pepped up again in 1700. Nowadays, together with Foggia, Cerignola and Manfredonia, it's a vivid trade centre.
