The old farmhouse in Supersano

The route winds through the Natural Oasis of the Serra di Supersano-Ruffano, among the relics of the Bosco Belvedere, in a habitat characterized by a great variety of flora, including the so-called manna tree, in an area of ​​ancient anthropogenic presence. Itinerary in one of the most evocative places in Capo di Leuca, with a walkway that reaches its maximum panoramic effect overlooking the valley from the balcony of the solitary church of the Madonna della Serra. The frescoed cave cave dedicated to the Madonna di Coelimanna is very interesting. with Byzantine frescoes. Ancient pajare and characteristic dry stone walls to delimit the fields and a Via Crucis set in a splendid naturalistic-hilly path. 

We will also visit the beautiful framhouse, in the territory of the Antico Casale di Sombrino, an ancient post office on the “Oil Road” with a still visible carriage road and an ancient underground oil mill. The Masseria Le Stranti is located at the center of an important crossroads between the medieval “pilgrims road” which connected Santa Maria di Leuca with San Michele sul Gargano and the via francigena and the “oil road” which, from 1400 to 1800, it connected the ports of Otranto and Gallipoli for the oil trade throughout Europe. The farm complex is very articulated and the agricultural vocation has been faithfully preserved, in fact Le Stranti is a farm with orchards, olive groves, vineyards and cultivation of seasonal vegetables, and with sheep and cattle breeding. Depending on the season, the external pergola hosts necklaces of hanging tomatoes, bunches of aromatic herbs, wheat and cereals, even tobacco leaves hung out to dry in the sun in homage to the most typical crop of this area now not used.
