Masserie del Salento
The term masseria (called masserì or massarì, massàre or massère the keeper of the farm) indicates a farm often fortified widespread in southern Italy, especially in Apulia. However, you can also find some in eastern Campania. Particularly in Irpinia and in the lower Sannio. Or, in central-eastern Basilicata, especially in the upper part of the Murgese plateau. And finally, also in the extreme northern Calabria and the central hinterland of Sicily.
Until the last century, the Masseria was the expression of a geo-economic organization linked to the large estate, the large land that fed the incomes of the aristocratic classes and the bourgeoisie. The masserie were therefore large farms inhabited, often, even by landowners. The large rural construction also included farmers' lodgings, in some areas even only seasonal, stables, fodder deposits and crops.
The Ancient Masseria for sale is located in Ugento
Ugento is 106 kilometers from Brindisi Airport, 55 from Lecce, 23 form Gallipoli and 26 from Santa Maria di Leuca. The city of Ugento is situated on the Gulf of Taranto. The territory was inhabited by the Messapians, the autochthonous population of Salento. On its territory, in fact, there were many archaeological finds. In addition, it was also a Roman municipality, under the name of Uxentum. Throughout history, it has also been targeted by assaults by Saracens and Turks. Since the eleventh century, the city has hosted the important Episcopal See.
Ugento is therefore an important archaeological site. In fact, from its subsoil have been brought to light Messapian and Roman inscriptions, tombs. But there are, and still partially visible, the ancient walls of the fortified Messapian city. Even, a bronze statuette depicting Zeus, dating back to the sixth century B.C. was found by chance in 1961.
The Archaeological Museum of Ugento preserves the history of the town. It is housed in some rooms of the former convent of Celestini, of the fifteenth century. You can admire amphorae and funeral equipment. While, the statue of Zeus was transferred to the National Archaeological Museum of Taranto.
Located in the coastal area of Ugento, LIDO MARINI, with TORRE MOZZA and TORRE SAN GIOVANNI, are perfect locations for families and children. Warm water and shallow water make the place particularly suitable. In addition, for those who have a four-legged friend, there is a dog-friendly beach in Paduli, south of Torre Mozza.
The seaside resorts of Ugento are characterized by long and sandy beaches, mostly free, and the presence of beautiful natural dunes and Posidonia that make this area an award-winning place with three sails from Legambiente. The characteristic Torre San Giovanni with the small fishing port is also a good starting point for a quiet walk along the coast.
