21st August – The “Taranta” Festival – Salve
A typical Salento dance/music called “pizzica”, is played during the festival with the aim of “exorcising” women bitten by a tarantula and heal them dancing to the rhythm.
Music, culture and gastronomy characterize the festival. In fact, walking through the roads of the village, you can see different types of beautiful buildings and court houses, where various artists (sculptors, artisans and painters) will show the best of their works. Moreover, it will be possible to taste traditional Salento dishes in the different stands.
