Vieste

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Puglia  /  Province of Foggia  /  Vieste
Vieste is a town, comune and former Catholic bishopric in the province of Foggia, in the Apulia region of southeast Italy. A marine resort in Gargano, Vieste has received Blue Flags for the purity of its waters from the Foundation for Environmental Education. The area covered by the commune is included in the Gargano National Park.HistoryIn mediaeval times, the port was frequently attacked by pirates, Saracens and other enemies of the Kingdom of Naples. In 1554 around 5,000 inhabitants were executed by the Turks, on the grounds that they were too elderly or infirm to merit transportation into slavery. This event is commemorated annually in a ceremony, which has now degenerated into a kind of summer Halloween.Ecclesiastical HistoryThe Diocese of Vieste was established around 1100 AD.On 27 June 1818 it was suppressed, its territory being merged into the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Manfredonia, which adopted its title only on 30 September 1986, when it was renamed as Archdiocese of Manfredonia–Vieste.Its Marian former cathedral is now the Vieste Co-cathedral and a minor basilica.
