WALKING IN SALENTO:
Over 100 kilometres of paths, old mule tracks and single treks in the unspoiled nature
of the Cape of Leuca. 365 days and 4 seasons to discover all the colours of trekking in Salento. Ancient peasant tracks that, following dry stone walls built more than 200 years ago, connect the most panoramic points of the Adriatic coast.
The "Vie del Sale" (Roads of the Salt) that, mixing the sea and the countryside, connected the villages of the hinterland with the sea. The trails of the Ciolo Canyon that will host in 2019 the mountain running world championship, the steep descents to the sea, drawn, long ago, by fearless fishermen. Routes rich in charm and traditions that trace the history of this land in a constantly changing nature and revealing unexpected beauties.
Walking into the Cape of Leuca in the Regional Natural Park Otranto-Leuca is a continuous renewal of beautiful views, natural landscapes on the sea, stretches of ancient olive trees, rural buildings and ancient villages, an experience that remains ineffaceable in the mind and heart of every trekker.
