Caves in the shadow of the Oak

Do you have only two days available for a short break? No fear. offers you a stop in a glimpse of very attractive territory: “Caves in the shadow of the Oak”. In the morning we could go along the “corridor of wonders” of the Grotta Zinzulusa (in Castro) to admire the characteristic stalactites in the shape of “zinzuli” (= hanging rags) that, in fact, give the name to the cave. While we reach the “dome” (the spacious cave), we might come across some bat, but they are harmless, there is nothing to fear. And in the afternoon? Or maybe the next day? From Castro we move to Tricase, more precisely on the road to Tricase Porto. At a certain point, we will see the suggestive Boschetto delle Vallonee: and it is here that we will have to stop. In this place, in fact, it will be impossible not to notice the famous Oak of the 100 horsemen, immense in its proportions, that manages to make shade for a radius of about 100 m on the surrounding land! So, backpack and come and discover the “Caves in the shadow of the Oak”.
