The main nucleus of Masseria San Domenico dates back to the fifteenth century and consists of a watchtower belonging to the Knights of Malta who had their main base in Puglia in the nearby port of S. Stefano. The Tower still intact with its manholes and flues stands proud of its historic role in the center of the residential area that gradually was transforming until the eighteenth century becoming one of the most important fortified farms in the area.
Working in the olive groves of the Masseria is hard work but satisfying, it requires dedication and tenacity, but the ultimate gratification is remarkable. Enjoying the star climate, sun exposure and the smell of the worked soil is always a special feeling. As human beings, we have a responsibility to do what we can to preserve the beauty and value of our land!
