Dry stone wall workshop in Murgia

Gravina in Puglia

€ 25 per person

1 h

2-15 per group

Description

The dry stone walls are a very particular feature of the Apulian landscape, and since 2018 they have been recognized as Unesco heritage. Thanks to the numerous advantages they bring, such as the delimitation of the fields, and the collection of condensation from humidity, over the centuries they have been invaluable allies for farmers. You have the opportunity to learn how to build a dry stone wall from a real local farmer, an expert in the relationship with nature; in a practical lesson, you will find yourself choosing the stones and assembling them according to geometries; you will create an authentic piece of wall, and you will learn this art of construction that tourists from all over the world come to observe and reproduce in their places.
