Experience an immersion in nature and culture at the same time: an archaeological-naturalistic walk into history and myth in one of the largest monumental parks in our region.
The guided excursion includes a historical-archaeological study on the origin of the Messapian civilization (Messapia – land between two seas – included all of Salento) and an illustration with a naturalistic shape. The route will go through 4 main points of interest: the Plinian Fountain, the Megalithic Walls, the Necropolis – over 1300 pit tombs! – and the splendid Church of San Pietro Mandurino with hypogeum.
The excursion is suitable for everyone and sports clothing and a personal supply of water are recommended. A tasting surprise starring the precious Primitivo di Manduria will brighten the finale of this journey into the Messapi civilization. You will savor and rejoice with all your senses of this experience.
