San Marco la Catola is a town and comune in the province of Foggia in the Apulia region of southeast Italy. It is a relatively small town that is built around an ancient medieval castle that still resides in the center of town. The castle has been inhabited by various monarchical leaders in the past, although it is associated most with Duke Pignatelli. The town has a rich history going back to at least the 12th century, when the castle was supposedly built. It was originally a frontier fort, but over the years a small town was built around it, and it is now San Marco La Catola.
