Endless mysteries on Procida

Hi All. This is my last relation from the beautiful island of Procida.

 

This time something about life of the habitants. There are some curiosities about them.
My favourite once are the following:

 

They enter their homes using the back of a donkey!

Let start. It is said that people from Procida enter their homes using the back of a donkey. Indeed, in this way they name the outside stairs typical for the local architecture. See these pictures and  see if this name is proper.

They eat bulls’ tongues… But do not worry, animals are not  in danger.  The bull’s tongue from Procida is the name of a delicious pastry you can eat only on the island. Even in Naples where people love sweets, this one is unknown. Maybe, the recipe for the lemon cream that fills the pastry is a local secret. The name is of course due to its shape.

Talking about secrets and mysteries. People living here celebrate the Easter mysteries, especially Good Friday, in a particular way. They organise loud and crowd processions in which they carry platforms with scenes from the Bible. The culmination of the procession is the statue of Saint Marry Lady of Sorrows. Spectacular.

On Procida lemons are more robust than anywhere else. Perfect for the tongue of a bull :) But not only lemons are cultivated here. Let’s see and enjoy views from Procida.
