Starting out from Montalbano we’ll cycle on secondary roads with low traffic to reach three different kinds of masseria, each one an example of different architecture, type, traditional activity and current business vocation. The tour continues slowly on small roads lined by stone with drystone walls, rarely visited cattle track and unique landscapes. The aim of the excursion is to show a different kind of Masseria located between Ostuni and Fasano and the key role they still have in Puglia’s economic and social scenario.
At the end of the tour, we will visit a historical masseria to enjoy a light lunch based on organic vegetable products and a traditional pasta dish accompanied by a good local wine.
