MASSERIA TRIGGIANELLO – TRIGGIANELLO - APULIA
4 BEDROOMS – POOL – TENNIS COURT
The Masseria Triggianello – Il Giardino di San Pietro ispart of a larger historical Masseria (farmhouse) surrounded in ancient times by woodland, dating back to the XVI century, and named “Masseria San Pietro or of Defence”, due to its position outside the ancient walls of the town of Conversano.
The place name San Pietro – which gave its name to the entire historical Masseria, attributed to the ancient rocky church annexed to the masseria and currently not visitable as it is now disused and assimilated with a private inhabitation – derives from the legend of the passing of Saint Peter of Conversano and represents the precise place where the Apostle preached in the countryside.
For many centuries it was the property of the Acquaviva d’Aragona family, Counts of Conversano, who used it as a hunting lodge. Entirely surrounded by a natural Mediterranean garden including millennial olive trees and dry stone walls, the farmhouse boasts a complete range of modern comforts and an exclusive tennis court. the property is at a distance of 4km from the town of Conversano, 1km from the village of Triggianello and 5km from the town of Castellana Grotte, nationally famous for its characteristic karstic caves, including the outstanding ‘Grotta Bianca’ found at the end of a 1,5km walk in the entrails of the earth, where an underground river has caused the formation of impressive stalactites and stalagmites. Numerous tourists descend on the caves from all over Italy to visit these caves. The property is in the area also known as the Upper Salento, famous for its many coastal towns, such as the beautiful and historic Monopoli, Polignano a Mare - birthplace of the famous Italian singer Domenico Modugno, Ostuni – the white town, Alberobello with its unique conical Trulli buildings, and the regional capital Bari, rich in history and important sites.
