      It tells of lords and pirates, of seas to be sailed and walls to defend, of rituals, feelings and traditions to be respected. The history of this Masseria relies on the memories of a noble family and has its roots in the sixteenth century when Saracen raids threatened the Apulian coasts.

      Between the blue of the sea and the green of the trees stands the tall fortified tower, the first bastion of sighting against enemies and bandits. From the top of the little bell tower, the alarm is amplified at every stroke down to the garrisons of the Abbey of St. Stefano and the Castle of Carlo V in Monopoli.

      Surrounded by lush countryside, the Masseria reveals its beauty among the large walls and allows access to the court through a main arch. From the court, with a leap in time, through a main arch, we reach the underground oil mill, the old stables, the expertly transformed venues and the consecrated chapel dedicated to Saint Lucia and San Vito.
