About the neighborhood
. The rituals, festivals, shows and the memories of this earth that combines culture and tradition, sacred and profane, Christianity and Paganism and that found in the patron saint the item to venerate and worship. During the period from 15 July to 31 August all the villages of salento celebrate their festivals, some sacred (religious procession), others pagan with music and dancing. In these festivals you can eat the food cooked by the women of the village, but what is more surprising is that all (old, young people and children) are in square dancing to the rhythm of overwhelming pizzica (an ancient dance of courtship). To see the “pizzica dance” or “la notte della taranta a Melpignano” to go on 'youtube'.
Getting around
we are at marina di corsano - a natural oasi by the sea, here you can enjoy the nature and the sea by walking through the famous 'vie del sale' slow trekking tours
