The Pulo, an elliptical karst depression with a major axis of about 550 m and a maximum depth of 92 m. Probably this is a collapse sinkhole, generated by the collapse of the huge ceiling, due to natural causes. On the walls of the north side we have numerous caves, certainly prehistoric dwellings of hominids; not very far from Pulo, in the fascinating area of Lamalunga, inside a cave, the skeleton of the famous "Man of Altamura" (a so-called pre -Neanderthal, who lived in the Pleistocene, in a period between 50,000 and 300,000 years ago) what the locals affectionately call "Ciccillo";

The old town of Altamura, with the majestic Cathedral, the National Archaeological Museum, one of its ancient mills and the ovens where the famous DOP Altamura bread is produced, cooked on stone, and many other products of the highest gastronomic quality that we will have the pleasure of to taste…

Almost all dirt, the itinerary focuses on three key points of interest: 1) The Pulo di Altamura; 2) Lamalunga; 3) the old town of Altamura and its ancient ovens
