Monte Sant'Angelo, Province of Foggia, Puglia, Italy

Situated on a high rock in the southern Gargano, overlooking the Tavoliere plateau and the Manfredonia Gulf.

It takes its name from the tradition that in 493 AD here Archangel Michael appeared in a grotto, and the nearby town of Siponto was able to defeat the barbarians. Bishop Maioranus therefore consecrated a church to St. Michael, which has become a pilgrimage site since then.
