Gravina di Riggio, Grottaglie (TA)
Min Age : 14+

The experience Trekking in the natural canyon of Gravina di Riggio will make you discover one of the largest natural canyons of Puglia . You will walk inside admiring the rich Mediterranean vegetation typical of the area and the walls of the gravina inside which were excavated medieval rock settlements .
At the bottom of the gravine, you will walk among millennial olive trees (some dating back to Roman times) and among wild plants .
You will also walk in the caves dug during the Middle Ages and used as dwellings. Among these, a beautiful Byzantine rock church frescoed with the technique of the palimpsest. You will also visit an ancient pharmacy carved into the rock.
Once you have crossed the canyon and reached its highest point, you can admire it, fully enjoying the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape. A panoramic view that will give you an unforgettable postcard of Puglia!

An experience rich in nature and culture!

The Gravina di Riggio of Grottaglie is part Regional Natural Park “Terra delle Gravine” which extends for many kilometers creating a unique environment from the landscape and ecological point of view. Besides the typical flora and fauna that populate the gravine, the guides will tell you about the geological development of the site, its historical and archaeological importance. Here, in fact, fossil finds of the Pleistocene and the Paleolithic were found. Furthermore the caves were inhabited during the Middle Ages. The historically most suggestive find is certainly the frescoed rupestrian church with palimpsests.
Surely one of the Puglia’s most beautiful natural gravine .

Below is a beautiful video of Salvatore Centonze where you can see the waterfall that is formed, unfortunately very rarely, during precipitations of large rainfall. The accumulation of rainwater gives life to a pond that makes the gravina a bucolic place with a great landscape and naturalistic charm.
