Ancient routes on the Salento inland, today traveled almost all on paved roads (but with little traffic) surrounded by olive groves. Old farmhouses and towers have turned into dining and reception where you can stop and taste the flavors of Salento. This trek is a total immersion in the wilderness of Salento, a sporting and cultural experience. Technical description: The path is on the floor and is not very difficult, it is suitable for every kind of hiker. The number of accommodations allows you to stock up on water or drinks without problems but we do not recommend this trekking in the months of July and August.
An ancient legend tells that a treasure was hidden by bandits within the walls of the old tower of the sixteenth century. But the real treasures are the products coming from the farm: jams, olive oil and pasta. From the tower you can enjoy a spectacular view on the Arneo.
