The Gargano Peninsula in Italy’s Apulia region occupies the upper left quadrant of this orthorectified image. Monte Gargano forms the backbone of the peninsula. Two lakes can be seen near the shores of the peninsula at the top of the image: Lake Lesina (left) and Lake Varano (right).

The Gargano Peninsula, or promontory, is one of the only mountainous areas in Apulia. Situated at the south-eastern tip of the Italian peninsula, Apulia covers over 19,357 km2 in succession of broad plains and low-lying hills, and is the least mountainous region in the country.
