Grotta San Pellegrino (Laterza – Taranto). Nuove valutazioni topografiche e toponomastiche

The objective of this work is to rebuild the relationship cave/territory, to identify factors that have contributed to the continued exposure of the resort by man from prehistoric to modern times, through the consultation of written sources, audio recordings, archaeological documentation territorial, topographic reading and surveys. At the moment the archaeological research of the surface does not leave room to the hypothesis of a church-cave dedicated to San Pellegrino, in the absence of documentation including the destination Christian worship. An ancient road leads to the assumption, on the basis of comparisons also place names, you can also stay inside the cave for hermits.
