The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary assumed into heaven or Church of Santa Maria di Foggiapiù commonly called Foggia Cathedral was built in 1170 in Apulian Romanesque-Pisan influences.


Foggia's Cathedral is closely linked to the discovery of Iconavetere, a Board that represents a rare Virgin Kiriotissa, whose story merges with that of the birth of the city. According to tradition the image, surrounded by seven veils (hence the name of the Madonna dei Sette Veli), was found in 1062 (other sources report the 1073) by a shepherd in a quagmire, the current Lake square in Foggia.
