september: second spring in puglia
September in Puglia brings a second brilliant spring: the countryside blooms full of new colours, delicious fruits and vegetables and surprising wild herbs.
The sea offers extraordinary fishing while the weather is still warm and welcoming. It is a month of transition, where the intense rhythm of Summer slowly gives way to the peace of Autumn and nature is ready for a new beginning.
Traditional farmers’ prayers ask the moon for a bountiful harvest and a good sowing. The passionate hands of winegrowers carefully harvest the juicy grapes and the families slowly find a new balance after the intense and joyful summer days.
It is the best moment to meditate and reconnect to the Earth.
It is also the perfect time to enjoy the beauties of Borgo in complete tranquillity, tasting the produce of the generous land, learning the unexpected properties of wild herbs, admiring the colourful landscape. The Piazza del Borgo is vibrant and full of traditions, intense tastes, and home fragrances, still full of the lively atmosphere of the late summer evenings.
Say goodbye to summer surrounded by the magic of Borgo Egnazia to find a new balance and be ready to welcome Autumn.
