GARGANO and Mattinata
MATTINATA, is a nice small town, crowned by a mountains range. It soars like a butterfly over two hills. The town, with a round shape, stretches towards the sea in a charming and large plain rich in varied vegetation. The beach of Mattinata is typical with its round and polychrome shingles. The coast is very beautiful: rocky tableland askew drops from the cliff to the sea sea-caves, among these the “bell cave”, that is called the Pantheon of Gargano, and the striking Zagare bay, well-known for its stacks. On the top of the mountain Monte Saraceno, km far from the town centre, the excavations have brought to light a necropolis of more than 400 tombs, dated back to the VII – VI cent. B.C.. The tomb equipments are kept in the Town Museum of Mattinata. The archaeological and ethnographic collection of the “chemist” Dr. Matteo Sansone is also to visit. In the chemist’s shop are kept more than 4000 ?nds of the history of Gargano. On the top of the Sacro Mountain, the ruins of the Benedictine abbey of the Holy Trinity are also to visit.
