Taranto is about 40 km from our structure and overlooks the Ionian Sea and is located 15 meters above sea level, in a flat area stretched along the axis North / North West-South East and surrounded by North West to East from the plateau of the Murge. Its territory has an extension of 209.64 km2 and is mainly wet by the sea, being characterized by the presence of three natural peninsulas and an artificial island, formed following the cutting of the original peninsula made during the construction of the castle moat Aragonese. The city is in fact also known as “the city of the two seas”, being washed by the Great Sea along the outer coast enclosed in the bay bordered to the North West by the Punta Rondinella and south by the Cape San Vito, as well as by the Mar Piccolo, which constitutes a vast internal basin. Taranto is also called Tarentum by the Latins.
Brindisi, which is about 60 km from Scorcialupi masseria, has a territory characterized by a large sub-flat area from which emerge calcarenitic and sandy deposits of marine origin, which in turn have a deeper level of clay lower Pleistocene, and one more subsequent carbonate composed of Mesozoic limestones and from the sedimentary cycle of the Fossa bradanica. The development of agriculture, above all intensive, has caused an increase in the use of water resources but has led to an indiscriminate increase in uses.
Lecce about 55 km from our structure, located in the central-northern part of the Salento plain. The morphology of the territory is generally flat. The Salento Plain is a vast and uniform lowland of Salento between the terraced terraces of the Murge to the north and the Serre salentine to the south. Characteristics of the territory are the mighty layers of red soil and the absence of surface waterways. The karstic terrain, however, has innumerable sinkholes (called vore or capoventi), points of call of the rains, which convey the water in the subsoil, feeding real karst rivers. Then the surface is crossed by numerous channels dug to facilitate the flow of rainwater into the sinkholes, and to avoid the formation of marshes. The municipal territory extends over 238 km2 and overlooks the Adriatic Sea for more than 20 km.
