What You'll Do
  • Trek the limestone karst depression of the Alta Murgia National Park
  • Explore caves where prehistoric tombs have been discovered
  • Hike a rollercoaster trail through aromatic plants and sinkholes
  • Look out for kestrels of the largest kestrel population in Europe
Trek the limestone karst crater of the Pulo of Altamura on a 3-hour hike of the Alta Murgia National Park in Apulia. Spend the day among aromatic plants and swooping kestrels, walk through canyons and sinkholes, and discover abandoned farmhouses.
What to Expect
Enjoy a 3-hour hike of the Pulo of Altamura in the Alta Murgia National Park, a casket of biodiversity in the province of Gravina on Italy’s heel.

The karst depression appears as a broad, deep crater set among gently undulating landscape, making for a gentle 3-hour walk through the limestone formations of the southwest Murgia of Bari.

Its major axis is approximately 1,800 feet (550 meters) and its maximum depth reaches 302 feet (92 meters), but contrary to appearances its origin is not volcanic. Instead, it is the work of millennial weathering of the rocks of the Apulian.

The path will be a rollercoaster of aromatic plants, canyons and sinkholes, with a visit to 2 caves, walking the path with the aid of electric lamps. Discover an old, now abandoned, farmhouse of typical Apulian architecture. And look for the resident kestrels, as the park is home to one of the largest kestrel populations in the EU.
