Tourist information
The land

Travelling the roads of the Salento in between a land flled with centennials olive trees and weath champs burned by


the sun in August, it is not difficult to bump into small constructions realized with dry white stones. They are called Caseddi, or Furneddi. These constructions come from the ancient times when the Salentine people built them with patience, fitting better they could the irregular stone without any mortar.
In fact, cause their extreme hardness, these stones cannot be easily modelled; therefore it was simpler to look for their right location in a gigantic and perfect "puzzle". Generally the Caseddi are not plastered and present the only opening is the door.
They were used until the first half of last century as summer residence or agricultural-pastoral shelter.


The cuisine
The Salento has appreciated gastronomic traditions. Let's think to the homemade pasta, with the better flours of hard grain that preserve a distinctive aroma "casereccio" after the cooking. Considerable is also the sauce, prepared with the juicy Salentine tomatoes and using a special sheep cheese produced in summer, the "cacioricotta".
But let's describe the simple fresh summer dish to make a break at noon waiting your taisty fish in one of the cheap restaurants of the village.


A meal strictly characteristic from Lecce town is the "frisa", a simple grilled slide of bread, a special "bruschetta" wet and garnished with fresh tomato, extra virgin oil and oregano.

In this land the magnificent hundreds years old olive trees reach unimaginable dimensions and give a superb spectacle to the traveller and a good extra virgin oil.
The simple Mediterranean meal to be accompanied tasting the unmistakable red wines of this sunny land, strong and delicate, pride of the Salentino farmers.

As far as folklore is concerned, to be noticed "la pizzica", the traditional popular Salentine dance which draw its origin from ancient stories.
The persons bitten by the tarantula was told to began to move itself in a convulse dance, following the frenetic rhythm of the tambourines, being possessed by malicious spirits that would have gone out prolonging the dance sufficiently. To day the young and the initiatives of the local administrations renewed this tradition as folklore.
