The tour of Manfredonia with a qualified tourist guide begins with the visit of the Swabian-Angevin-Aragonese castle a few steps from the sea. Here you can visit the interesting archaeological museum of the Daunian Stele, a stone funerary monuments from the eighth to the fifth century A.C. and one of the most interesting museums of southern Italy.
