The route starts from the parking lot in front of the Poggiorsini train station, the first stop is the Jazzo Filieri, at the foot of the Murgiano ridge. The track then becomes pretty flat, but only partially paved. In the first part the itinerary will thread along the archaeological area of ​​Grotteline where we will see ancient traces of the Murgiancaves system.

Continuing we will find a way more recent historical site, in fact we will pass alongside one of the 10 launch platforms for US nuclear warheads (do not worry, everything was dismantled in 1963!) that NATO placed in the Alta Murgia area during the Cold War as an anti-Soviet deterrent.

The second half of the route winds all along the foot of the Murgian ridge between fields sown with wheat and other cereals. We will pass by two beautiful historic farms and finally reach the Norman-Swabian castle of Garagnone, whose ruins almost blend in with the limestone of the hill on which it is perched.

The itinerary is immersed in the Murgia area and is centered on one of the most important points of naturalistic interest in the Alta Murgia National Park: the Pulo, a giant elliptical karst depression among the largest in southern Italy.

On the walls of the northern slope of this sinkhole we encounter numerous caves, most likely prehistoric dwellings of hominids. Various testimonies confirm this thesis: the archaeological finds and the discovery, not far from Pulo, of the skeleton of the well-known “Man of Altamura” (so-called pre-Neanderthal man, who lived in the Pleistocene, in a period between 50,000 and 300,000 years ago).

We will take you to discover the biggest of these caves which houses a beautiful and panoramic natural view of the sinkhole.
