An Archaeological Park of special importance as evidence of the high position achieved by ancient Siponto during the Roman period (colony founded in 194 BC), when it became one of the main ports of Regio II and then the seat of one of the most important dioceses in the region.
After the port turned into a marsh and two devastating earthquakes in 1223 and 1255, Siponto was abandoned and its residents moved to the new city founded by the son of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, King Manfred (second half of the 13th century), which was called Manfredonia and later, under Angevin rule, Sypontum Novellum.
