Description of the track:

One of the longest itineraries that we have chosen, immersed in the grassy Murgia, there are no particular difficulties involved, apart from the length, which however, one can get around dividing the route into the short version and covering it in two stages.

Almost entirely gravelled surface, the itinerary is centred around three points of fundamental interest:

 

1) The Pulo, a carsic hollow of an elliptical form, with the widest part roughly 550m and the deepest 92m. This is probably a collapsed dolina, formed that is, by the collapse due to natural causes of the enormous roof. On the north facing walls we have numerous caves, surely prehistoric settlements of  ominidi; to confirm this theory there are not only the discovery of archaeological findings, but also the discovery not far from here, of the skeleton of the famous “man of Altamura” (the so-called pre-neanderthal man, which lived during the Pleistocene, in a period between 50,000 and 30,000 years ago.)
