November could be an unusual month to travel and visit Salento, a land where the sea and beaches are its main vocation. And yet, spending a few days in Salento in autumn could still be a good idea, thanks to the still mild climate. That’s why!
Even if the diving and swimming season gradually goes away, discovering Salento in November could offer you an even more special opportunity to explore the area. Without the summer crowds and the hot wether, you will find an immense pleasure in discovering unspoiled natural landscapes both on the coast (with the beauty of the rocky and sandy stretches) and in the hinterland (countryside and villages full of history).
Salento is also a land with plenty of art that you can admire in the churches, the architectural beauties and the museums in Lecce and in the many villages of Salento.
The food and wine itineraries are also one of the most pleasant ways to discover and appreciate the flavors of this land. To complete the program for your holiday, there are many events, which characterize the autumn in Salento.
Every 1st November in Carpignano Salentino there is the Ognissanti Fair, one of the oldest festivals in the area. Born as an agricultural festival outside the village, around the year 1000, it originally had the purpose of exchanging products and tools for overcome the winter. As the fair became larger and larger, it was moved to Carpignano, where it still occupies a large area of the village, involving almost the entire town.
Novello in Festa is celebrated in Leverano, one of the main events for wine lovers. Gastronomic stands of typical Salento products give the possibility of tasting, not only wines, but also cheeses, oil and other local products.
On the 9th, 10th and 11th in Taviano they celebrate San Martino, the patron saint. Along to the religious celebrations, do not miss the festival with typical local products, the tasting of Novello wine and pyromusical games. On the day of San Martino, all the inhabitants of Salento celebrate the new wine, with events in the squares and in the pubs of each village in the province.
