Tourist information on Foggia

General information on Foggia

Not far from the Marino bus stop, near the train station, is the Cathedral of Foggia, closely linked to the findings of the Iconatevere, a table that represents a rare Virgin Kyriotissa. Its history is based on that of the birth of the city.
According to tradition, the image, wrapped in seven veils - resulting in the name of the “Virgin of the Seven Veils” - was discovered in 1062 by a pastor, in a bog, the current Piazza del Lago in Foggia. However, the entire historical center, centered on the Via Arpi, is worth a visit. This is where, in the 13th century, the Swabian Emperor, Frederick II, built his palace, which is now no longer standing. This area today is characterized by a dense network of alleys, ancient churches, and noble palaces, as well as a series of tunnels and hypogeums, all to be visited.
