Difficulty by foot

Once you’ve left the town centre of Vignacastrisi and gone past the Chapel of the Madonna of Constantinople, continue straight until you get to a rest area, after which you’ll enter the centre of Marittima.

After a series of junctions, where you need to take care, cross the provincial road and head towards the church of the Madonna dell’Attarico. Carry straight on and pick up the unpaved road that will take you near to the ruins of the Sasso Tower, looking out to sea. Moving on, you’ll come across a forest of eucalyptus trees, pines and Vallonia oak trees, typical of this area. Lastly, you’ll come to a crossroads indicating the port of Tricase, but the Via Francigena heads towards the town centre, located in the hinterland. This leg of the journey ends in Piazza Pisanelli in Tricase, which can be recognised thanks to the Gallone Princes’ castle.
