The small town of Giurdignano is considered the 'Megalithic Garden of Italy'. Surrounded by dolmens, menhirs and ancient stones, the Salento village offers visitors an authentic picture-postcard scenery that unfolds among cobbled streets, courtyard houses and historical monuments. In Via Menhir, in a small square in the heart of the town, the silhouette of the monolith dedicated to San Vincenzo stands out. Giurdignano boasts the ancient tradition of the Tavole di San Giuseppe (St Joseph's Tables), long tables full of dishes to be offered to the poor. On 19 March, traditional dishes such as chickpeas, fried fish, lampascioni, and desserts such as 'purciddruzzi' and 'cartellate' with honey are prepared. Around the banquet, set up in the square, gather the devotees impersonating the saints, led by St Joseph, who starts the feast.
