Focara di Santa Lucia is linked to ancient pagan rites. It is made with bundles of olive branches, collected by pruning, by the patronal feasts committee and this is how the fire rite is born, with the lighting of the bundles, at the end of the fireworks. The festival marks the end of work in the fields and the arrival of winter.
In the past many small bonfires were lit in the streets of the cities and throughout the Grecìa Salentina, this ancient rite was linked to pagan cults.
The fire festival, as in any self-respecting Salento festival, is surrounded by concerts and good food. More info
