Lama Balice Natural Park

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Lama Balice Natural Park has an extension of 308 acres and covers a “U” shaped typical karstic incision called “lame” (“furrows” dug over time in the limestone rocks by the running water of rivers and streams). The park crosses the Murgia Plateau in the municipalities of Bitonto, Modugno, and Bari and then reaches the sea.
The bed of the “lama” was once occupied by the Tiflis’ Stream, now drained but still showing traces of prehistoric settlements.

Visits to the park are extremely interesting also thanks to the presence of olive groves and several numerous farms scattered throughout the territory, such as among Villa Malatesta, Masseria Caffariello, and Villa Framarino.


Among the main animal species in the Park, there are foxes, frogs, hedgehogs, weasels, moorhens, black-winged stilts, owls, kestrels, kingfishers, mallards, buzzards, brown-billed jays, and waders.

There are also many plant species: carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua), holm oaks (Quercus ilex), laurels (Laurus nobilis), Macedonian oaks (Quercus trojana), hawthorns (Crataegus monogyna), wild asparagus (Asparagus acutifolius), wild orchids, and aromatic herbs such as mint (Mentha spp.), sage (Salvia spp.), and thyme (Thymus spp.).
