Via Appia variant 2     Segment 45     from km 504,7 to km 519,5

Taranto (Tarentum) - Masseria Misicuro (Mesochorus) from North [from South]

next

This segment towards the statio Mesochorus near Masseria Misicuro, which was described by a large number of authors, is no more identifiable nowadays due to the different area conditions (industrial plant, new residential housing, new traffic conditions).


Anyhow there are some antique Masserie (Nasisi, S.Pietro and Le Lamie) where the road passed and some chapels (Madonna di Galese,..) or rests of ancient villas (roman or medieval) built in beautiful sites, witnessing the existence of a pre-roman network.
