Are you a nature lover? We invite you to the area of Puglia richest in biodiversity, with a quiet and fairytale atmosphere, where you can rediscover the pristine environment of the National Park. The so-called “spur of Puglia” is a promontory covered with forests of pine, almond and olive trees, which alternates Mediterranean scrub and sandy coasts, rocky faults and cliffs overlooking a crystalline blue sea. The Park also houses the Umbra Forest, the green heart of the Gargano, and includes the wonderful Tremiti Islands, which can also be visited by boat. The white villages of Peschici and Mattinata, Vieste, Monte Sant’Angelo and San Giovanni Rotondo, famous for the historical events of Padre Pio’s rural preaching, fit into this scenario.
