  • After the Duomo and the basilica of Santa Croce, here's another Church that enhances the excellence of the baroque city of Lecce. Don't be fooled by the exterior façade that does not do justice to the richness of stucco, sculptures, paintings and Baroque decorations contained within it. Each votive chapel is a riot of Baroque art, as well as the altar and two large chapels. Suggestive passages that connect the various chapels appearing to go through the rooms of a baroque palace.

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.
