In a nutshell:
The Via Francigena is the ancient pilgrims’ route, some 3200 km long, that has united Europe and its peoples for hundreds of years. The penultimate stage of the Via Francigena, which goes from Vignacastrisi to Tricase, passes right next to the Marenea Suite Hotel and offers to those who walk or cycle its approximately 14 kilometres a varied and incredibly fascinating scenery, ranging from a a flowery countryside to eucalyptus groves, from pines and oaks to rural churches, crypts and watchtowers. For the adventurous who wish to extend their path, another wonder of this land awaits them: the famous Vallona oak, located along the road from Tricase to the sea. Its estimated age is approximately 700 years, and it is surely worth a visit.
