In a lush basin nestled among stretches of olive, almond, Indian fig and apricot groves lies the pure white village of Mattinata.
The tourist port, today one of the most crowded on the Garganic coast, is located three kilometers away from the inhabited city center.
Olive oil is its principal resource together with the tourism that, in striving to integrate with agriculture and environment, is prompting the establishment of numerous agritourism centers.
In addition to its picturesque white buildings, all furnished with balconies overlooking the bay below, Mattinata attracts visitors for its sea in particular: the pebble beach here is one of the largest in the Gargano.
Ironwork, terracotta and decorated clay artwork form the foundation of its flourishing artisan production.
