It will be possible to admire one messapic tomb in a private garden of Lecce, have breakfast with cheeses produced in one fortified farm inhabited by peasants, to be received in one castle of Salento or in one convent on the sea that since the eighteenth century hosted famous travelers. Under a clear sky the expanses of vineyards which delimited by dry walls they are the crown of ancient masserie.
