The town of Vieste is located in the Foggia Province of Italy and lies on the most eastern part of the Gargano Peninsular. The heart of the town is still its fishing village origins but also has many cultural and traditional items of interest for visitors to enjoy. The town's lovely beaches and crystal clear waters are a particular attraction for its visitors. The sea bed also offers a wonderful place to explore for scuba divers and snorkelers. The Old Town is worth exploring and includes sites such as the castle that was built in 1240 by Frederik II, the Byzantine cathedral and the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Merino. For those who visit the town during May they will be able to experience first hand the procession of Santa Maria de Merino that is held on the 9th of May. The procession of San Giorgio is another event not to be missed which is held every year on 23rd April and sees a wooden statue of the Saint paraded through the streets of the town, concluding in a horse race along Pizzomunno beach.
The Italian island of San Nicholas lies in the Isole Tremiti Archipelago in the Adriatic Sea. There are five islands in the archipelago and they are San Domino, St. Nicholas, Cretaccio, Capraia and Pianosa, and collectively the islands form a commune of Italy's Province of Foggia and form part of the Gargano National Park. The island's can trace their history back to the Iron Age although in the Middle Ages the archipelago was ruled by the Abbey of Santa Maria a Mare (Holy Mary of the Sea) at San Nicholas island which is thought to have been founded in the 9th century by Benedictine monks from Montecassino.
The island's were used for the detention of political prisoners during Mussolini's Fascist regime. Today, the islands are an important tourist destination because of their crystal clear warm waters. San Nicholas is where most of the population live and is the site of a monastery where a monk named Nicolò was buried. Legend has it that every time someone tried to move his corpse off the island, a violent storm would break out, preventing navigation around the island.
