The "Paduli” itinerary covers a route that winds along the six towns of Salento, starting from Nociglia, the municipality on the north, to arrive in Montesano Salentino, Miggiano, Taurisano, Ruffano and Specchia. It is a route that connects natural places, in fact swampy, and places of great religious significance. The area of Paduli is a particular olive-planted Salentine countryside whose name came from the frequent and prevalent phenomena of flooding. In the countryside of Montesano Salentino, the area known as Padula Mancina is indeed a marshy area which is a remnant of a vast marshy area that is largely reclaimed in the present time. The itinerary, designed as a "slow" route to be carried out almost entirely on foot or by means of slow transportation, also goes across the beautiful Serre Salentine, such as Serra of Supersano - Ruffano and that of Casarano that offer tourists to see panoramic spots from which they can admire the surrounding landscape. The area is also rich in places with a strong religious significance, such as Santuario della Madonna della Serra and the Cripta del Crocefisso in Ruffano, alternating with wild and mystical areas as the Manfio, characterized by thick Mediterranean shrubbery only passable through narrow trails that penetrate the thick vegetation, as well as the famous perforated stone known as the Menanthol. Among the events not to be missed are the famous feast of St. Rocco in Torrepaduli and the famous "Danza delle Spade" which takes place on the night of August 15.
