long history of Masseria Capocanale dates back
to the 16th century. Masseria Capocanale is a perfect example
how the great antique family estate, that earlier was used also
as Frascolla family’s summer residence and for entertaining
friends, has been turned to an idyllic and successful Bed &
Breakfast – still remaining in the same family.
like the farms usually at that region Masseria Capocanale is
also surrounded by the great walls. The whole place is situated
on the hill at the end of beautiful avenue. While wandering
around the farm you will meet plenty of interesting and fascinating
pieces of the past. Age-old canyons, ancient ruins and ravines
take you back in time to the days when the first inhabitants
arrived to Taranto’s region.
most interesting things, that are absolutely worth to see, are
the ruins of ancient structures and the caves that were once
used for living and breeding of farm animals. Ancient constructions
are built on the banks of the canyons that were once rivers.
Besides the caves you can also discover age-old tombs, structures
of ancient bridges and of course many ruins of historical dwellings.
These remarkable pieces of the past describe how the local farming
and construction are developed until these days. In that sense
it’s possible to get to know a little piece of the local
and historical architecture too.
same banks of the canyons, where rise these historical structures
and ruins of Masseria Capocanale, continue far ahead. On that
region there are lots of antique “masseria’s”
and centres of populations that are constructed on the same
banks of canyons. Nearest cities, for give an example, are Statte,
Massafra and Laterza.
