Focara di Santa Lucia Events

dec 13 2021

Lights and fire to renew the peasant tradition linked to the closure of work in the fields and waiting for winter and the light of spring. The Focara replaces the small bonfires that in the past centuries were lit along the streets of the town of Grecìa Salentina, a ritual linked to archaic cults of pagan origin.
Focara di Santa Lucia is also a feast of flavors linked to the typical productions of the country: in the food stands set up around the concert area you can taste high quality legumes, bread and pucce with mother yeast, pittule fried in extra virgin olive oil of local production, the Christmas sweets proposed with the ancient recipes of the Grica tradition.
