Lessito | The Pretty Rose

Summer has returned, which means it's time to visit the breadbasket of Cattala once more. Last year we focused on Ontano island, in the south east of Cattala, quite a lot, but this time we're moving further north into the mainland.

Lessito is the biggest province in terms of area, covering all of the eastern lands of the mainland and stretching into the north as well. Despite this, it is the most sparsely population region, with no substantial cities and a rural heartland full of villages and hamlets communities.

Today we're stopping by the Darna comuni, which is straddled by the A5 road from San Pietro to the Ontano Bridge. Darna services is one of the larger ones along the road, which is popular with holidaymakers going from the city to the beaches of the east.

Recently the government has announced a large investment in the infrastructure of rural areas like Darna. This bridge is being rebuilt to cope better with flooding and more traffic, as it formed a bottleneck at peak times and was regularly closed in the winter, cutting off many hamlets from the a-road.

The village of Yewell is a small community outside of Darna, north of the busy carriageway. Here, a secondary road is the easiest way to travel from the village to the rest of the province. Farm life dominates this little place, with sprawling orchards and vineyards as far as the eye can see. In summer, the town is buzzing with workers picking fruit and taking it off to market and warehouses.

Yewell is fortunate enough to have its own industrial buildings to store fruit and vegetables in, before they get taken to the shops of the country and the shipyards for sale overseas. This year, the storage facilities will be overflowing with juicy grapes which will soon be taken to Jennai for brewing into some of the country's most delicious wines.

Besides its heritage for wine making, Yewell's other claim to fame is the Saint Martin's Retreat Centre, where young people from the cities come on pilgrimage to rest, relax and develop spiritually and emotionally. It's a very popular venue for school retreats and a way for urban children to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

But not everything is rosy and perfect in Lessito...
