Loop ride of the masserie

The route starts from Castellana Grotte heading towards the coast through olive groves, trulli houses and farms. Castellana is situated on a karst plateau in the Murgia dei Trulli 300 metres above sea level, and to reach the coast you need to … go downhill!
On this route you will also ride the “Murtirolo delle Puglie”, an uphill stretch where the gradient almost reaches 15%. Once at contrada Torricella you come to Monopoly, a gem of local architecture mixed with sumptuous religious buildings and splendid noble buildings and some coves with Caribbean-like water where it is absolutely a must to swim. Along this route you will come across many different farms, a stop is required to taste and savour the local products. The Lamapecora one is where cows and sheep are bred and from their milk numerous cheeses are produced including mozzarella cheese. Or the Masseria Maccarone where oil is produced on the premises, this is the town of Fasano which is the southernmost point that we will reach on our itinerary before returning to Castellana Grotte.
