  • Upon entering the sanctuary we were greeted by a friendly friar, who explained structure characteristics and delighted us with his sympathy. You can visit a magnificent crib, an inner courtyard with a lively Aviary filled with colorful parrots, an ancient Church redecorated with mosaics, statues and San Damiano cross. The place isn't huge but is highly recommended, especially for architecture lovers of ' 500. Just outside the shrine, don't forget to take a ride in a library, where you will be greeted by a friar librarian while surrounded by books that are ancient artifacts from past testimony. Without fear, simply indicate the place where archaeological finds (in the library). You will find ancient art with fossils, vases, old typewriters and ... The more you have and so forth. Very nice, we were more than satisfied. The place opens at 3! So if you get there before I recommend to eat in a good restaurant-pizzeria on the road just after the convent, which is called the Ivy. Affordable prices and cordiality. We tasted a typical dessert of Manfredonia, with cream, pears and chocolate. Enjoy your visit!!

  • The sanctuary of San Matteo in San Marco in Lamis allows visitors to stepping back in time. Everything is reported around the year 1000 and that you can see the shape and construction of the shrine itself. It is mainly the kiosk, where there is an aviary, to bear witness to the architectural canons of the convent. Surrounded by greenery and with a great view on the gargano, is worth to be visited and, between a mass and a simple prayer, the spirit will benefit, as well as the body. Detailed information contained within and noteworthy permanent Christmas crib in an inner room. Very beautiful frescoes in the Church. Ample parking and a chance to visit the relevant to the convent.

  • In this Sanctuary I go there as a kid. Min really like. Only the small wings inside the Church lost a lot. Years ago it was jam packed with souvenirs.
