What to see and what to do at Roca?
Roca is divided in “Roca Vecchia”, settlement dating back to the Bronze Age and “Roca Nuova”, a small medieval hamlet. Here there are several things on what to see and what to do at Roca. First trip to the archaeological park.
It is indeed an area affected by a historical process fascinating and full of myths and legends. Big discoveries make the archaeological site one of the major attractions in Salento. This fraction was abandoned in the mid ‘400 because of the Turkish invasions, bringing the population to seek refuge in Roca Nuova settlement, located inland, to shelter from invaders.
What to see and what to do at Roca? Definitely must visit Grotta della Poesia (Cave of Poetry), one of the most beautiful ten natural swimming pools in the world, or to swim away from the tourist crowds, in one of the many areas mostly unknown.
