Starting point : Lecce Old Town

Distance: about 35 km

Difficult: medium/easy

Duration: a day

Just outside the city, we'll find the Romanesque Church of St. Mary of Aurio, which dates back to the 12th century when the area was a Byzantine settlement. Continuing on dirt patches, we'll see fortified farmhouses, some of which we stop by.
From here we'll reach the coastline and we will stop by the beach near Torre Rinalda and have our packed lunch (arranged by the organization upon request at the cost of € 5 per person).

After the lunch break, surrounded by twisted trunks of olive trees, we'll get to the Abbey of St. Maria in Cerrate, an important Byzantine site near the ancient Trajan-Calabra Road that led from Brindisi to Otranto.

Right next to the abbey there is the Provincial Museum of Popular Traditions, which preserves objects and tools of peasant labour and some accurate samples of Salento ancient houses. Keeping on secondary roads we'll head towards Guagnano, where we will visit the house-museum of the eclectic artist Vincent Brunetti.

Our tour will end with a wine and cheese tasting at the "Feudi di Guagnano" winery. Return to Lecce by train and bikes transport in a van.
