The Arabs’ trail

LUNCH INCLUDED. Tricarico is a unicum in the Southern Italy because of its unchanged landscape and urban structure, a testimony that has survived through centuries. Its walls, the terraced gardens, the emiforiche towers in protection of its gateways, the Rabatana gate with a pointed Islamic arch and the two districts of Rabata and Saracena, testify the long episode of Arab settlement in this town. They firstly occupied the territory with fortified border structures so that they could increase the concentration of militias employed in military attacks. Those structures then evolved into full-fledged residential neighborhoods whose characteristics have been preserved almost intact to this day.
