near Casalabate, Puglia (Italia)

A nice walk through the olive trees.

But luckily there is a lot more to see then olive trees. The vegetation is quite varied and there are several pajaras and masserias on the way. There are also 2 geocaches on the route. Check out the pictures with this hike as well as with the waypoints if you want to get a preview.
Parking

Abbazia Santa Maria di Cerrate

The starting point of the hike. You can visit this old Abbey. Abbey is accessible every day from 9:30 to 13:30 and from 14:30 to 19:30. For more details, visit Wikipedia (only in Italian): http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbazia_Santa_Maria_a_Cerrate_(Lecce)

Shortcut - End

If you don't want to walk the whole hike, but only want to visit the geocache, then you can go from this point to "Shortcut - Start" directly to reduce the hike to about 5 km.
