Valle d'Itria

Trekking in the Bosco delle Pianelle Nature Reserve

Text translated by Google Translate.

The route takes place in the Regional Natural Reserve "Bosco delle Pianelle", a very interesting trekking full of places to explore.

It starts from the Visitor Center of the Reserve to immerse yourself in the dense forest, following marked paths that lead to fogge (cisterns of fields), carbonaie (ovens for producing coal with wood from the forest), calcinaie (kilns for making lime) and iazzi ( goats shelters). Along the way going up the slope of a small gravina (canyon) you reach a panoramic area where, from a wonderful view of the Taranto Plain, you can admire a boundless landscape up to the Gulf of Metaponto on the Ionian sea and, beyond, a stretch of the Pollino mountain range . We return to the wood rich in Mediterranean scrub and oaks, some of which are centuries old, until we reach a beautiful abandoned masseria (farmhouse), full of charm, with an imposing master's house and a rich area intended for services with multiple trulli.

Duration:about 3 hours. Kilometers to go: around 6.
Difficulty: medium / low with some difference in level of the terrain not particularly significant.
Clothing: technical shoes and in summer it is recommended to dress to dress in layers.
Upon request it is possible to combine a final tasting of local products.
