Back to archive

The roads outside La Peschiera are bordered by agricultural land and the sea. Cycling along you can see the conical roofs of a beachside trulli, a former store for fishermen or farmers. After ten or fifteen minutes you will reach Egnazia, the 4BC Roman ruins and excellent museum that traces the history of the site through artefacts such as ceramics, sculptures, coins and utensils.

 

Stroll along Egnazia’s stone roads, past the defensive walls that stood 7 metres high, envisaging the busy life of this city. There are 5 BC intact Messapian tombs on view. Cycle back for a refreshing dip in our pools, or to relax on your private beach.
