   Faro of St Eufemia Vieste

This tiny island stands on the north-eastern tip of the Gargano peninsula, opposite the ancient town of Vieste. It is believed to be one of the oldest settlements in the Daunia region of Puglia. Finds from Neolithic to Medieval times have been uncovered throughout the ages. Recently a discovery of inscriptions in a cave tell us that the grotto was dedicated to Venus Sosandra.

   Basilica of St Leucio at Canosa di Puglia near Bari

Amongst olive groves are the foundation and remains of an early Christian Basilica dedicated to San Leucio. It probably was a pagan temple of Hellenistic influence which the Romans adapted and dedicated to Minerva and in the IV-V century AD, was transformed into a Christian Basilica by the Byzantines.

   Landscape of olives and almond groves in Puglia

Wedge-like fields of olive and almond groves in the centre of the photos make a pleasing pattern. This landscape is a palimpsest : settlements of all ages and geology overlay each other and can be traced and disentangled by the examination and study of cropmarks in the growing vegetation.
