Smallish medieval mountain town based around a castle and a church. Amazing views over Puglia! Friendly people always willing to give you grappa after your meal. Narrow streets with lots of stairs.

This sanctuary is very beautiful and a great experience to be had. The chrurch itself is inside a cavelike structure and if you go on a Sunday you can witness a mass. It is a very beautiful sanctuary and experience.

The Church and the surrounding area is beautiful. I had not heard of this Church. We were with a tour group and spent half a day in the town. It was one of my favorite stops. It was not very crowded this time of year.

The view from the top of Monte Sant'Angelo is astonishing. The church and the entire historic building is worth every minute driving up there.

The "must sees" are Matera and the trulli houses in Alberobello. If you get an opportunity to visit the Gargano peninsula, (Vieste), it is also a lovely place to visit.

I recommend also to take the coast road from Barletta, not the toll highway. This April, the road linking the main highway with Manfredonia was in repairs and in very, very bad state. To avoid!
