  • The castle must be very beautiful but everything is closed, made us to pay €10 entrance but everything that you can see it is an expo that is 3 parts... even the Museum of paper mache was closed! No point has nothing, do not fall into the trap, it's wrong at the entrance that we see nothing

  • Impressive fortress from the outside, but we didn't bother attempting to go inside.
  • Castel is beautiful but a lot of it is closed off for renovation. We also could not see the underground portion because the lights were out when we were there
  • Very little to see inside except an art exhibition. More of the castle wall and Tower looked like it might be possible to see. Except currently closed
  • We came on a Saturday and were told it was closed until Tuesday. We came back on Thursday and were told it was closed again for 16 days. The signs did not indicate so and the staff were impolite.
  • Bellisima! One of the strangest place I've ever seen, but it is very interesting!

Where to stay in Lecce

To enjoy Lecce's medieval architecture, consider staying at a B&B in the town center. Elegant on the outside and comfortable on the inside, B&Bs in this area offer airy rooms and modern conveniences suitable for every budget. If you wish to avoid the crowds of the city's central areas, explore the lodgings offered by private guesthouses on the edge of town. Located in quiet residential zones, they provide access to private outdoor spaces and secure parking, just a short drive from the old town's shops and restaurants.
