About Parco Rupestre Lama d'Antico
The Lama D’Antico Rock Park houses one of the most interesting rock settlements in Apulia. Here you can explore several structures which were part of the village (X-XV c. A.D.): -the imposing church carved into the rock, -cave-dwellings, -caves used as work-shops. In addition, in the park you can also visit two small lovely churches, St. John’s and St. Lawrence’s whose walls are frescoed in bright vivacious colours. The entire itinerary is set in a wonderful natural habitat rich of olive groves and Mediterranean maquis.

Wonderful old frescoes in a quiet site. We didn't find it in our travel guide but tripadvisor did mention it. Signs at the road lead you easily to the parking.

I have been there the first time 335 years ago. The cave/church was still used as a storage place. Since they have been detected by the historians, it is a outdoor museum. The valley has a great spirit and it is worthwhile to see

Lama means "canyon," and we walked with our guide down to the valley floor, not knowing what to expect. There is a whole system of previously inhabited caves there, dating from the 11th-16th Centuries. We saw an amazing "cathedral in a rock" with the remains...More

This was such a different and beautiful site we visited while vacationing in Puglia. You have a guide that takes you through the countryside by foot to amazing caves. The walk requires decent closed shoes and maybe bug spray. We used a little in May...More
