Leuca -

Ride through Leuca streets and countryside and learn along the way with the commentary from your tour expert guide! First stop at the small village of Salignano for a visit to its impressive defense tower. The entire population of the village could take refuge in the tower in case of attack by the Saracens. We'll move on to Patù, where we'll discover the Centopietre, enigmatic monument built with a funerary function, then used as a religious chapel (there are traces of Byzantine frescoes) and, in recent times, even as a sheepfold.Cycling through country roads, you will see the hill where Vereto village once was, probably the largest and most important Messapian settlement of Salento, the mainland of that population whose buildings remains were found in the whole peninsula. We'll then reach Barbarano and visit the Shrine of Small Leuca and its cave, an ancient pilgrimage destination and shelter for pilgrims going to Leuca.On the way back we'll visit the castle of Giuliano and finally Castrigano, where we'll go down to the impressive ancient underground oil mill. Final tasting at the restaurant "Retrò" in Castrigano.
