Horseback riding to discover devil's "jazzo"

Spinazzola Area- Puglia





Within the Scoparella forest, consisting mostly of Roverella oaks, it stands the jazzo of the devil, one of the jewels of the rural architecture of the Murge: an enclosure for sheep and goats in common use in the territory of the Murgia and Gargano , built along the tracks and intended for the temporary shelter of sheep during the long journey of transhumance and divided by drywalls equipped, on the outer side, of the characteristic "Paralupi" drooping that prevented access to predatory animals able to climb.

Legend has it that in the silence of night, two shepherds with their flocks while found to stand in this place they heard the dogs barking, at least for half an hour, then subsided.

There was a knock at the door was a poor malandante who could not find the way.

They housed him doing sit around the fire, but soon realized that the man in rags had some furry hooves, the two shepherds took shelter under an iron crucifix, while the devil was gone in a flash.
After spending an unforgettable night, the two shepherds saw that all the animals were still alive, and from there was born the legend of the shepherd dogs were even able to cope with even the devil.
