Part of the Club "Authentic Italian Villages" and  "Virtuous Towns" Association, for the ecologically sustainable management of the territory, Melpignano historic center is in Pietra Leccese, which culminates in central space of Piazza San Giorgio. Located in the heart of the village, it is perimetered by a series of Renaissance arcades to the full, overlooking the Mother Church, the Chapel of Assumption and the Clock Tower (1901). The porticoes are a rare example in Puglia for commercial purposes: they date back to the end of the 16th century and were built to accommodate the great weekly market on Saturday.
