 Karst landscape

Karst landscape

Are you ready to ride in nature? The entire network is accessible by mountain bike. Many parts of the network are also accessible to normal road touring bicycles. The characteristic qualities of karst landscape manifest themselves at the surface as well as below ground. Often the surface of the fields and unmade roadways have the appearance of a reticulated network of ‘V ’-shaped grooves, where the rock is fractured and weathered. Small ponds are created through surface erosion and the subsequent presence of algae, which produce carbon dioxide and organic acids. The development of holes in the surface of vertical rocks is due to the acids released by small clumps of moss and algae which cling to the rock surface. Other organisms that flourish within the first few millimetres of the rock’s structure may also have a similar corrosive effect.

Andria, the city of the three bell towers

Piazza Catuma (or Piazza Vittorio Emanule II) is one of the oldest and most representative squares of the city. The scholar Giuseppe Ceci traces the name "Catuma", with which the square is known to most, to the homonymous esplanade at the bottom of which stood the church and the feudal castle, Riccardo d'Urso, reports that in the early Middle Ages the square hosted pagan rites. Piazza Catuma, therefore, has always been an important center of power and public life: there overlooked the Ducal Palace and the Bishop's Palace, held markets and livestock fairs. Even today, the square is a junction between the main streets, a venue for shows, concerts and a meeting point for young people.
