Walking in the Laterza ravine

11 April 9:30 - 13:00

Walking in the Laterza ravine

With this walking itinerary we will go walking in the Gravina di Laterza; one of the largest canyons in Europe. The Gravina di Laterza is the most imposing and majestic gravinal furrow of the Ionic arch of the Gravine, with canyon dimensions, as its typically meandering path develops a length of over 12 km and 400 meters wide, covered by lush Mediterranean vegetation . To characterize this canyon are very deep rocky walls that descend to the bottom of the ravine, about 200 meters deep.

It is precisely its depth and its orogenetic conformation that gives hikers a unique and exciting scenery that leaves you speechless. Since 1999, the ravine has hosted an oasis managed by the LIPU and is included in the International list of I.B.A. (Important Bird Areas). A real “happy island” where the Egyptian vulture nests at certain times of the year.

Taking the path that runs along the eastern edge of the ravine for almost its entire length means taking a trip to one of the most suggestive environments in the Mediterranean. The many colors of the blooms, the intense scents but above all the grandeur, the shapes and the dimensions of such an unusual natural environment.
