A journey inside the cave settlements in lama d’Antico
Discover one of Puglia’s oldest and most distinctive places! Lama d’Antico is an ancient cave settlement, our area’s most impressive. Nestled among the olive trees, it spreads over the rocky sides of a small canal, or “lama”: here lies a number of unbelievable man-made caves, where time seems to have stopped, allowing you a hands-on experience of daily life in the Middle Ages. Here houses, workshops, stables, all kinds of buildings are laid out around the most fascinating item in the settlement and the former hub of the village, a cave church.
