The zone that separate Lecce from the sea proves the beauty of Salento’s landscape and still preserves the traces of the important role that this area played in the history. Riding out from Lecce towards the southeast through secondary roads, we will reach the fortified village of Acaya, a Messapic site where you will admire the majestic castle, the walls of the village and his ancient city plan, still preserved. Then we will move towards the WWF natural park “Le Cesine”, which hides many beautiful plants and water birds. So we will refresh with a nice swim in Torre Specchia and we will cycle back to Lecce crossing a landscape full of olive trees and small villages
