The Snail Festival in Cannole - La Festa Della Municeddha a Cannole

From the 10th - the 13th of August

The small village of Cannole, which is in the south eastern corner somewhere between Lecce, Maglie and Otranto, has made a name for itself in recent years with its Festa della Municeddha, a sagra dedicated to the consumption of snails (municeddha in the local dialect, in Italian its lumache). And it is precisely this snail dish with a tasty and delicate flavor, which the little town of Cannole has been dedicating a festival for the last 27 years.

In fact on August the 10th starts the 28th edition of this very unique festival and for straight four nights this small and quite town is invaded not only by those who already know this festival but also from all the tourists on holiday in Salento. Queen of the evening is of course the Municeddha cooked by local women in 3 different ways: fried, with sauce or roasted.

But for those who are not fond of snails and do not even want to try them, you'll find many different other stalls with other Salento specialties such as pieces of horse meat, wheat bread baked in a wood oven with anchovies and ricotta forte, pizza rustica, pittule and peppers. Of course do not miss the opportunity to dance then the pizzica, a typical dance of Salento, with local folk music and many local different folk groups
