Salento, things to do on holidays in October in Salento

In Salento, summer doesn’t end on September 21st. The warm season, in fact, lasts at least one month longer, not only thanks to the temperatures that continue to be pleasant, but also because the events still go on.

If you come to Salento in October, you can enjoy natural landscapes (beaches, sea, countryside) in total relax, exploring new itineraries, taking advantage of the respite from the summer heat. The period, therefore, is ideal for planning walks through cycle-tourist routes, visiting museums and admiring the churches and architectural beauties of every corner of Salento.

But if visiting the beauties of the area is still not enough, you can take part in the events that in October have become usual appointments for Salento.

On the first days of the month in Scorrano we celebrate the Feast of San Francesco, patron saint of the village. In addition to religious celebrations, do not miss the market with exhibition stands with traditional products, musical groups and fireworks.

In the second decade of October, in Martano, there is “Sagra de la Volìa Cazzata“, that is, of the crushed olive. The festival is meant to be a good omen for the olive harvest.

The occasion is the right one to taste, in addition to the “cazzate” olives, also the various typical dishes of peasant cuisine. The festival is also twinned with the Risotto Festival of Villimpenta, in the province of Mantua, and it is therefore possible to taste typical Mantuan dishes.

On the third weekend of October, one of the most famous festivals in Salento takes place in Muro Leccese, that is the sagra “te lu porcu meu”, where you can taste many pork meat dishes.

For information on where you can spend your holiday in order not to miss the events, we recommend you some villas/holiday houses:
