The creator of the early settlement was perhaps the Norman leader Robert Guiscard, so the name Biccari derives from Viscarum. Others say that it was the inhabitants of Lucera who escaped the attacks of Constans II, in 663 to found the municipality together with the nearby Tertiveri. Other theories speak of Bulgarian origins, the name Bukavar, Watchtower, would later become Biccari. Finally the origins could be Greek dating back to the eighth century, in this case the name Biccari would come from Bikos, the cup of Jupiter.
The small medieval village, between alleys and fascinating views, is dotted with imposing monuments, such as the cylindrical Byzantine Tower and the Mother Church dedicated to Maria Santissima dell'Assunta, whose size dominates the skyline. But Biccari offers above all the opportunity to enjoy the wildest and most unspoilt nature: that in the natural area of Lake Pescara and Bosco Cerasa, at the foot of the highest peak of the region, Mount Cornacchia. The forest covers about 310 hectares of greenery, with paths, equipped areas and observation points and hosts an adventure park with paths for adults and children.
