  • To visit! Recommended in the evening. The installation is very unique and allows to revive the ancient Christian Church without impacting on existing! To do for guests visiting Manfredonia and surroundings!

  • The Romanesque style of the 10th century. It was founded where before there was an early Christian basilica. In medieval times it was stage for pilgrims to reach the sanctuary of Saint Michael the Archangel in Monte Sant'Angelo. Not everyone knows that Siponto was an ancient Roman town and in this area there are still remains of the ancient city. Due to its destruction (earthquake/tsunami) the city was moved today Manfredonia, founded in the 13th century. by King Manfred, son of Frederick II and Bianca Lancia. Manfredi Manfredonia wanted to transform into one of the most beautiful cities in the world; but due to his untimely death in battle his dream vanished. The beauty of so many things remain, as in Saracens into a powerful attack, in 1620, destroyed it completely.

  • On our trip through Apulia in the natural park of Gargano near Manfredonia we passed here by chance. The "intact" church building stands next to the remains of the early Christian basilica from the 6th century. Remains of the foundations of the nave of the Basilica can be seen next to the Church. In addition to the historical sequence of events is the work of artist Edoardo Tresoldi. The Italian has here created the rooms of the old Christian Church (the nave/ship) with a wire mesh, recreated. Incredible!

  • The Church was rebuilt in the 11th century by Leo, Archbishop of Siponto and Monte Sant'Angelo. In 1198, started new renovation, a monk named blessed under the Regency of Costanza d'altavilla, mother of Frederick II began the construction of the Church. Above the entrance door you can admire a bas-relief Madonna and child and two angels, under the angels there are the patrons of the Church, that is, Constance of Sicily and his son, Frederick II. The Interior of the Church is a Basilica is divided into three naves. The nave is covered by a one. The capitals of the pillars are decorated with ornaments and grotesque figures. The walls are decorated with Byzantine paintings with depictions of angels and saints. Inside one of the earliest frescoes of St. Francis, a beautiful San Michele on the horse and Saint George and the Dragon, all (as I said before) of Byzantine array. The entrance to the Church is free and you can sometimes find it open in the evening. I highly recommend you visit it at night (even days is spectacular) to breathe the air of almost a thousand years ago, for those like me who adore the Romanesque (what pugliese the detail) is a place worth visiting, just steps from one of the most mystical and rich in history in Italy!
