Of ancient origin, the sentinel of Puglie has a privileged geographical position that sees it lying on top of three hills in the center of the Tavoliere to preside over vineyards, olive groves and vast expanses of wheat, supported by masserie.

The name Lucera could derive from the Etruscan and mean sacred wood ("luc" "eri"), or from the Greek and mean white wool ("leuka eria"), or finally from the Latin lux Cereris, in reference to a temple dedicated to the Goddess of the crops.

Lucera is a stone book written inter alia in Greek, Daun, Latin, German, Arabic, French and Spanish. The glory and magnificence of its history are engraved in its countless monuments, which allow the Nobilis Leceria (Horace) to boast the title of "city of art". Ancient capital of the Capitanata, Lucera is a city shrouded in mystery: mythologically founded by Diomedes, king of Aetolia, it was first a Greek and then a Roman colony; it was conquered by Charlemagne, disputed by the Lombards and Byzantines and became an imperial and Arab city with Frederick II of Swabia, then Christian and Gothic under the D'Angiò.

The "G. Fiorelli" Civic Museum, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Angevin Swabian Fortress and the ruins of the Frederick’s palatium, the Cathedral Basilica and the many churches that dot its centre, the beautiful noble palaces bear witness to its incredible history. Its historic center is of an unexpected beauty and elegance, making its streets and its amazing squares stone lounges where a quiet everyday life lives between elegant boutiques and delicious cafes.
