History and datin (customs)
The first historical record is a document dating back to 1527. However, it is known that the village is much older than that. Many of the old customs of the local people are still celebrated nowadays under the name of datini. These customs are organized by the Town Hall of Lisa throughout the entire year and are connected to the most important events from the life of the community: the Heroes` Day? Ispas; the Groups of Lads, on the occasion of the winter holidays and children`s carols on the occasion of Christmas; the local custom "Datul în strai de Anul nou" (throwing people in the air using a traditional blanket) and the Herods, on the first day of the year. On holidays the young people dress up in folk costumes and the groups of young men, specific to Tara Fagarasului, attend a festival where they present their repertoire.
