The historic centre of Cutrofiano enchants visitors with its cultural and architectural beauties, such as Palazzo Filomarini (also known as palace of the Princess), the Church of the Immaculate and the main Church dedicated to Saint Mary of the Snow. But the identity of the village is expressed by the traditional technique of working with clay. The very name of this village come from the word “cutrubbi”, the vases made of clay produced in the village, which is well know for its ceramic and terracotta products. Cutrofiano is the most important place in Salento for the production of ceramics. This culture is very well illustrated in the Museum of Ceramic, a collection of objects from prehistoric age to contemporary ceramic works. Tourists should also visit the Park of the Fossils and the Malacological Museum of Clay, hosted in an old quarry.
