Manfredonia, in the Province of Foggia and the Region of Puglia, lies between the Gargano promontory and the high plain known as the Tavoliere delle Puglie.
It sits on a cliff looking out over an inlet of the Adriatic Sea.
The city, founded in the 13th-century, is surrounded by a fortified wall with cylindrical towers which are typical architectural features of the time period.
Also from the medieval period are the Castle and the 'Church of St. Domenico'.
For admirers of the Baroque, there is the Cathedral which was rebuilt in the 1600s.
