Question: “An area of ​​southern Italy where trekking? Maybe not too well known but with huge potential?

Reply: “The Gargano!

I know ... the Gargano is known as a destination for sea, Vieste, Peschici are two of the most famous names.

But this is NOT just the sea and some do not know.

Eccoti 2 ideas to discover a different Gargano, Full decisamente, if combined with the traditional seaside holiday for which it is famous.

An idea for those who are more active and want to do some 'idea of ​​trekking and for those who just want to relax in a place of peace and rest.

The excursions to monasteries and the Abbey of Santa Maria di Pulsano

All’Abbazia di Santa Maria di Pulsano can get in different ways, with easy trails through the woods and depart from neighboring countries, or directly by car.

The complex is approximately 9 km da Monte Sant'Angelo, other known pilgrimage destination Gargano.

The abbey has been restored very well by the monks in the area and many of the works are still in progress.

Curious about the fact that the monastic community now has twice as ritual: Byzantine and Latin.

Right in the complex of the Abbey you can visit the first hermitage (cave), to San San Gregorio Magno, completely renovated and used for conferences and celebrations.
Always nearby are the 'Hermitage of San Michele Arcangelo.

La vallata degli Eremi

All other shrines are located in the scenic valley beside the Abbey and are categorized as trip type EE or experienced hikers.
Do not demoralize, This category means: people without special equipment (only a pair of hiking boots), fitness for a way to deal with short-term and no fear of heights because you pass in some places a little 'exposed, but without any particular difficulty.

Just a couple of monasteries instead, Rondinella and that of the hermitage Prison, are in the category of EEA (Expert Hikers Equipped) should be avoided unless you have no knowledge of mountaineering equipment and.

The first thing that crossed my mind was: “How much willpower and faith it took to live in holes like this?
Because of holes, caves, we're talking about, really a life of suffering in the name of prayer.

Bosco Quarto

And 'trip quieter and for the whole family, the Bosco Quarto not far from the most noble and important Umbrian Forest but at the same time is different, the atmosphere is more "housewife"If I pass the word, less demanding.

You can also cross with the car via a dirt road that cuts; the forest is made up of beeches and oaks really impressive.

Full Bosco Quarto you can stop - and I recommend you seriously - to Casa Natura, a former station of the forest put back in place and now used as a restaurant, bar, multipurpose room for events.
There are also 5 rooms.

My advice on Casa Natura is a must especially for 2 reasons:

the kitchen of Cosimo: remember it ... I guarantee it does almost everything he, insacca i salumi, produce i formaggi, Here the word "genuine"Is unnecessary and ostentatious, Cosimo kitchen here at home.

the hammocks in the garden: I curse the fact that we found a day so cold. I can only imagine how relaxing it is to lie in a hammock, the shade of an oak with a book in hand and a beer in the other.

As I said, the area is also suitable for children, There are quiet lanes, during the summer is definitely a place to get some 'fresh after spending days on the beach.

***

These are just 2 idea, in the coming weeks will speak again of Gargano, the ideas popped up during the project #MadeinManfredonia were many and this small part of Apulia made me realize that there is not only the beautiful sea.

Now some practical info:

For the tour of the monasteries and the Abbey of Santa Maria di Pulsano but not limited to (being of Manfredonia love the area and have a lot of hiking in the catalog) you can contact 'Agenzia Daniatur, are professional, helpful and always with a smile on his face (which in my opinion has a much).
Also have the pagina Facebook.

If you want a safe address where to stay, a place to consider starting point for your journey in the Gargano I vote the Pizzicato Eco Bed&B a Vico del Gargano.
Pine is a guarantee, now I know in so many and it is no secret that ... I'll let you find very, very well by him, Guaranteed!

Greetings,
Christian
