The marina in Vieste is a wonderful show of colors: the golden bay, that is soaked by the light blue waters of the Adriatic sea, and the surrounding emerald Mediterranean scrub. On the Gargano coast, one will be astonished by the landscape Vieste offers, close to our hotel: a beach made of a tiny sand, the rocky walls of the Gargano that cliff into the sea giving life, in some points, to the amazing, enchanting marine grottos.
Among the most beloved places by tourists we want to talks about the striking Cathedral, that was built in the XI century in a romanic-pugliese style, and the majestic Castle, whose construction has been wanted by Federico II in 1240. In the surroundings, there are also a lot of marvellous grottos, among them the Rotonda, the Viola and the Smeralda, and the blooming Foresta Umbra, a true biological heritage of the Apulia and the Southern Italy.
The city center, due to the carsic nature of the territory, spreads itself on a typical rocky peninsula, known for its natural points of interest, as the bays and the beautiful peaks of San Francesco and Santa Croce. The peak of Santa Croce, above all, is where is located the local harbour that is also the starting point for the Tremiti Islands. It worths to be also mentioned, among the most appreciated tourist destinations, Pugnochiuso and Peschici. The territory around Vieste, is limited by two sandy beaches that are so amazing that, more than once, worthed to Vieste the Blue Flag of Europe, for its clear waters.
Vieste is also included into the National Park of the Gargano and is included into the Mountain Community of the Gargano. The southern beach of the city, known as "del Castello", is enhanced by an impressive faraglione, 25 meters high: it is the legendary Pizzomunno, a monolith whose are told so many stories. The legend talks about love and pain: it seems that Pizzomunno, a fisherman, who suffered a lot due to the loss of Cristalda, beautiful girl with golden hair, turned himself into a rock.
Any century the beloved girl comes back to the land to join again, in a unique night, with her unforgotten lover. So, if you choose Vieste for your holidays, you will live a dream holiday by spending relaxing and funny days...
