Monte Saraceno

It’s located about 5 km from Mattinata, towards Manfredonia. Average height around 250 meters, is of paramount importance from an historical perspective and culture, because here during the VII – VIII century A.C.  landed and settled ( attracted for the good position) the tribe Daunians, which named this mountain “ Mount Matino”.

The current name, however, derives from the entrechment of the Saracens, around the year one thousand.

The necropolis of Monte Saraceno Sanctuary, surrounded by the ancient Matino, preserve almost many intact typed evidences of daunia civilizations.
