Every year, thousands of tourists visit the town of Vinci, which is a relatively small town, but you have olive groves and vineyards around it, plus various house farms called "agriturismo".
"Festa del cieco Santo", Celebration of the Holy Blind.
Back in the past, the citizens of Vinci sold the town of Vinci to the municipal office of Cerreto Guidi, because they felt in love with a girl from that town. When the inhabitants of Vinci rebelled against such a thing, they punished the loved one!
In the evening there is a festival accompanied by knights and two buffaloes, carrying the accused along with his assistant - also a traitor, the people of Vinci dress in traditional Italian costumes, of course the culmination of this city theater is the point. The blind saint from Vinci was accused and imprisoned by local executioners in front of the people, he was thrown over the city from the highest tower in the village, but even before the cruel fate had the opportunity to ask one thing, what the citizen asks is a cup of good red wine chianti to protect him from the cruel fate of death. How he confirmed the ability of being a saint? When he was thrown from the tower, began to fly in the heat and flew into the gardens full of olive trees and vineyards, they declared him like a saint. It takes place every year and it is worth seeing and experiencing. A tradition that has its place. It is topped with beautiful organized fireworks lasting 20 minutes.
Tuscany and its most beautiful places.
The beauty of Tuscany is that it has cities and towns around rich and fertile land that was once covered with swamps; before Christ at the time of the paleontologist, there were large marshes. In a few thousand years, these marshes became a rich and fertile country in which they began to grow olive trees and vineyards. The overgrown rolling hills are lined up like soldiers on the rolling hills, the olive trees are still giving the beneficial medicine of olive oil.
I cannot forget the vineyards with their grapes that are tasty, and sometimes places such as Chianti region are curative.
The beauty of the Tuscany region is also in the diversity: each town is unique and original, sometimes on the hill you find ancient remains of walls or medieval town houses or the forgotten historic center, tower or fortress that is inhabited by perhaps five families.
The Tuscany region has the power to open your eyes and your heart and you will feel an incredible symphony, peace and joy of the moment.
