The Cape of Leuca, once even considered Finibus terrae (the end of the world), is an area made up of tiny and equally suggestive villages.
Cycling through the cobweb of country lanes that unite these villages full of history and charm, we will discover some of the hidden treasures, such as the defense tower of Salignano (starting point of the excursion), the enigmatic Centopietre di Patù (a monument of Byzantine origin, unique in its kind, where the remains of ancient frescoes by Greek monks are preserved) and the overlooking church of San Giovanni. We then head towards Giuliano, where we visit a medieval Castle, with its small moat full of citrus fruits and the large caper plants hanging from the walls.
Last stop before embarking on the short way back the Sanctuary of Leuca Piccola in Barbarano, where we visit the small church and the huge underground, where once the pilgrims who went to the Sanctuary of Leuca found coolness and refreshment, walking on the Via Leucadense.
At the end of the excursion, excellent tasting in the "Retrò" inn, where Salvatore - cosmopolitan chef and at the same time tied to its territory - will give us a taste of his skill and the freshness of his products.
Also suitable for families with children aged 6 years and over (seats available for children under 6 years).
