Vieste

Overview

Arriving in Vieste means discovering a town suspended between sky and sea, interwoven with history and culture. Walking through the old town centre, your gaze is enchanted by the details that recall the town's medieval past, among narrow streets and old houses, then visiting the Castle and the Cathedral, and arriving at Piazzetta Petrone, which offers a wonderful view of the sea from its belvedere. Known as the Pearl of the Gargano for its magnificent beaches and crystal-clear waters, it preserves an almost wild nature in its high cliffs and sea caves set along the coastline. The sea is also recounted in its Malacological Museum, which houses over 15,000 shells from all over the world. Finally, the symbol of Vieste are the trabucchi: structures that narrate the ancient life on the sea, when they were a place of fishing, of simple gestures and hard work, while today they are small but charming restaurants, islands suspended over the welcoming waters of the Adriatic.
