The Trabucchi in Vieste and Peschici along the Gargano coast

Trabucchi are magnificent fishing buildings, erected at the furthest point of the rock, overlooking the sea. They are made of a wooden base resting on wooden posts driven into the rock, equipped by ropes and a big fishing net and a pulley that guide it. When it raised the fishing net, it raised the fish with a long net called “coppo”. Currently, their main use is not to fish but just do remind and revive emotions of a ancient fishing method.
