The first certain news of Palmariggi comes in 1269 when Charles I of Anjou divided the fief in half. In 1330 Guidone Sambiasi reunified it and thus reunited it passed subsequently to various families: to the Cesaroli, to the Santacroce, to the Ventura. From 1463 it became the property of the Aragonese, then of the Mattei family, of the Varvassi and finally in 1688 of the Vernazza. According to the historian Maselli, Palmariggi was originally a castle of Otranto, built in its defense from internal incursions coming from the ports of the Ionian sea. The first urban agglomeration called Casale San Nicola was built around the castle and was attacked several times, dismantled and destroyed and then rebuilt.

A popular tradition has it that in 1480, after the capture of Otranto, the Saracen hordes began to plunder the villages of the hinterland and also the small Casale San Nicola. On the hill of Monte della Guardia, known as Montejuzzu (Mons Jovis), the men of the Casale were preparing for a confrontation with the Turks while the women took refuge in the Church to invoke divine help. When the Turks were about to attack, a prodigious event happened: the Holy Virgin appears. holding a palm at the head of an imposing phalanx. The Turks, fearing that the army led by Duke Alfonso of Aragon was about to arrive, withdrew and the population was saved.

Hence the name and emblem of the country which could be explained in the sense of fruitfulness and firmness: the palm was in fact a symbol of abundance and durability, but also of victory and resistance, among the ancients.

In memory of this event, according to tradition, the inhabitants of the farmhouse wanted to change the name of Casale San Nicola in Palmarice, Palmaricce and finally Palmariggi, which means precisely “You who hold the palm”, in memory of the Madonna holding the palm and whom they elected to be their protector.
