The historical centre of Manfredonia, designed by Manfredi, and later redesigned and completed by Charles of Anjou, has been enclosing the community of this little town, since 1900. The special character of the historical centre of Manfredonia is represented by its streets made from pavement of lava stone, besides alleys and courtyards, inside which, a lively life involving all the inhabitants, still continues there. In the streets, in the white alleys of the historical centre, you can breath a spontaneous, genuine air, which is typically Apulian. The whole historical centre was reconstructed after the destruction by the Turks, which took place in 1620, and can be admired today in all its beauty. Its heart is Piazza del Popolo and Via Maddalena, one of its oldest streets.
