A carriage excursion, to discover the Murgia.

The last May the first excursion took place with beautiful vintage carriages, organized by Masseria Grottillo, in collaboration with GAL “Terre di Murgia”.

The event was part of the program of ITINERAMURGIA, sponsored by the Gal to discover the rural places and the excellences of the territory.

The excursion started from Masseria Grottillo (Contrada Grottillo, County Road 128 to Laterza, km 6), crossroads of streets and paths located at the feet of Santeramo’s Murgia. Since the early morning a lot of people reached the farm to live a unique experience, in contact with the nature of this area.

Beautiful Murgese Horses pulled the carriages and accompanied visitors during a journey across smells and colors of this region, to discover historic buildings like Masseria Morsara and the old Wine Factory De Laurentis, close to Appian Way.

A slow trip, very distant from the daily frenzy, which gave everyone a chance to enjoy the countryside.

At the end of the rural trip, 20 km long, Giampetruzzi’s Family which owns the farm, offered a rich and genuine buffet. All the products, including cheeses and sausages, were freshly handmade by the staff of Masseria Grottillo.

The traditional tastes combined with the natural beauty of our lands, are the right keys to live in an authentic way and make known our great region.
