Description of the track:

The itinerary which has the city of Santeramo in Colle as point of departure, runs through la Murgia Santermana as far as the forest of Mercandante, situated in the territory of Cassano Murge.

The route half of which is gravel, and half tarmac doesn’t contain any particular difficulties or steep climbs and is therefore suitable for all.

The steppe landscape which you’ll cross will marvel you with its colours, the naked rock sculpted by water and the wind stands out with its bright whiteness against the contrasting green of the grass.

Arriving at the half way point you’ll be welcomed by the luxuriant Mercandante forest, the green lung of the province of Bari, which contains within a source of the freshest water the whole year round, a miracle for a parched land such as the Murgia.
