Overview

A guided trek along the paths of Puglia's southeastern coast, in the area of Porto Badisco, part of the Regional National Park of Otranto and Leuca. It's a historical walk that takes you all the way back to the Mesozoic period and along a path that was once part of a tropical coral reef. Now petrified, this reef has emerged and submerged many times at the command of the Euroasian tectonic plate. The tour ends with a well-deserved snack of local products.
