Bike tour in Dune Costal Park – ENGLISH

Extra Virgin Tour: Starting out  from Albergabici in Montalbano we’ll reach the olive grove plain and the ancient Traiana road that in the past connected Rome to Brindisi and today links Fasano and Ostuniwith an paved cycling path, with hardly any traffic, full of spots of interest that describe what rural life used to be like. During the tour we explain the history of the olive oil, from cultivation to harvest of olives describing the different production methods depending from on its final use: from the lamp oil to the high quality extra virgin we’ll tell you about the history and the passion developed over the centuries, always in tight connection with the local community. On the trail we will visit an hypogeum oil mill with old millstone and presses, a  fortified masseria farmhouse, a modern mill and a centenary olive tree. Is possible to arrange an extra virgin olive oil tastings.

Farm House Tour: Starting out from Albergabici in Montalbano we’ll cycle on secondary roads with law traffic to reach three different kinds of masserias, each one with different architecture, type, traditional activities and current economic vocation. Tour continuos slowly on small roads lined by stone with drystone walls, rarely visited cattle track and unique landscapes. Target of the excursion is to show the different kind of masseria located between Ostuni and Fasano and the key role the still have in Puglia’s economic and social scenario.

Later  we’ll visit the organic fish farm, which origins date back to the middle age  and is still able to tell us about ancient and diligent work of the river fishermen. On the way back we’ll be hitting the most cinematographic route in Puglia that we’ll take us  to the oldest megalithic monument in the Park: the Dolmen of  Montalbano.
