  • Along with the Cathedral of Troia and the Church of St Leonard is certainly among the most important monuments of Romanesque architecture, Tuscan Captained. Attention to opening hours, spectacular art installation depicting early Christian basilica.

  • It is not known the exact date of the Foundation of the Abbey, but it is known that in 1127 was officiated by the canons regular of Saint Augustine, therefore it is likely that the complex was built in the early 12th century or at the end of the 11th century. At the turn of the century, the Abbey had already affiliate other ten churches in the area, to which they added four more in the first half of the thirteenth century, index of importance in a short time. This time, so the first half of the 13th century, can be considered the most flourishing period for the Abbey, then begins a rapid and inexorable decline, given especially by the scarcity of economic resources. In 1261 the Abbey passed to the friars of the Teutonic order, making it the Centre of their activities in Apulia, where he remained until the second half of the fifteenth century. Left the scene also the Germans the Church administration, now considered Badia, is given in commendam to the Cardinals of the local diocese. In 1527, during the siege of Manfredonia, the troops of Odet de Foix occupy the convent, but needn't cause too much damage if already in 1538 the Church is officiated. In the 17th century the Church goes to the friars minor who, during their administration, operate some changes at the convent. In 1763, for example, is built what is today the part still habitable. The Franciscans leave the Church in the early 19th century, bringing with them the original wooden statue of Saint Leonard of the thirteenth century, the statue of our Lady and the relics of the body of Saint Martyr Celestine, which are transferred to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie di Manfredonia. The King of Naples Joachim Murat, by Decree of 21 January 1809, suppressing the St Leonard's Hospital, assigned revenues to the Hospital of Foggia, with the obligation to receive to keep the sick of San Leonardo. The Abbey was completely abandoned. The complex undergoes a series of damage during the second world war, repaired after the war by don Silvestro Mastrobuoni, reopening the Church for worship and became pastor. Currently still serves as the seat of the parish of Siponto.

  • The Abbey was restored by posco and some parts are nearing completion, but is wonderful, well worth a visit, though the location is a little uncomfortable and State reach booby you must travel in the lane towards Manfredonia, is not reported properly or on the street or in the neighbourhood. However, for lovers of the Apulian Romanesque architecture is not to be missed. The embroidery of the portal and the statues are unique and stunning elegance sculpt. The light that reflects the stone adds the sacredness of the place.

  • Abbey of San Leonardo in Lama Volara is an Abbey situated in Siponto, ten kilometres from Manfredonia, Foggia. Founded in the early 12th century, declined in the second half of the thirteenth century, passing under the administration of different religious orders until the final closure of the hospital in 1809, which decreed its abandonment. Today the Abbey has been restored and is visited by pilgrims and passers-by.
