Hiking From €25.00

Trekking in the protected area between Otranto and SM di Leuca to the bauxite quarries


from € 25 per person

2:30 h



In this trekking route we will walk along breathtaking paths, we will learn to recognize rare and protected plants but also the most common herbs that are used for the preparation of typical Salento dishes.

We will scrutinize the sea from the Torre del Serpe, symbol of the city of Otranto and we will observe from a distance the lighthouse of Punta Palascìa, which stands on the easternmost point of Italy.

We will close our experience among the breathtaking colors of the former Cava di Bauxite, whose red earth walls contrast with the emerald waters of the lake formed thanks to the aquifer.


The cost is € 25 per person for a minimum of 2 participants; snacks and anything else not mentioned are not included in the price.
