ECO-PASSEGGIATA CON DEGUSTAZIONE

"I CALANCHI DEL MONTE ASCENSIONE"

Sabato 22 aprile dalle ore 15:30 alle ore 18:00


Il primo appuntamento con le eco-passeggiate proposte dall’Associazione Guide Turistiche “Marche V Regio”, è un piccolo viaggio alla scoperta della natura e della cultura del Monte dell’Ascensione, che si eleva nettamente sul lato nord della città di Ascoli Piceno in mezzo alla lunga distesa di colline che la circondano.

Un territorio aspro e difficile che l’uomo ha modificato solo parzialmente, trasformandolo in un insieme armonico che fonde gli elementi naturalistici e del paesaggio con quelli culturali ed architettonici.

Ci immergeremo dunque nel paesaggio dei calanchi, arido e quasi inospitale, ma pieno di fascino poiché in esso è possibile ritrovare la forza primigenia della natura e osservare la sua capacità modellatrice del territorio, per arrivare al piccolo borgo di Porchiano, appollaiato sopra uno sperone argilloso, che fu un tempo uno dei capisaldi più potenti dello stato ascolano.

Racconteremo le storie, i miti e le leggende dei personaggi che abitavano questa montagna e le vicende che li legano alla città di Ascoli Piceno.

La passeggiata è facile e non presenta dislivelli particolarmente pronunciati, il che la rende adatta sia agli adulti –anche ai meno giovani- che ai bambini.

Finita la passeggiata risaliremo in auto per raggiungere la vicina Cantina Pantaleone, dove ci sarà ad attenderci una gustosa merenda-aperitivo preparata con cura dalla famiglia che gestisce questa piccola azienda vitivinicola.
