  • It is one of the churches to visit in Lecce, that behind a facade with convex hides a classroom with a central plan with its galleries covered by grates and large Windows takes on the appearance of a favor Rococo Theatre. The fanciful lines and rich decorations, outside and inside, make it precious, rich and a bit sickly.

At the chapels open, in the upper register, seven large Windows from profile mixtilinear alternated with niches that House the statues of the Blessed Beatrice, Agnes, loved and Vegetables. Along the walls are opened also lattices of choirs from which the nuns participated in the celebrations. The amount of space between the various chapels is enriched by the presence of some paintings depicting Evangelical scenes and saints: assumption of the Virgin, transit of Saint Clare, the risen Christ, the Virgin and child, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The presbytery is characterized by a monumental altar, filled with architectural elements and adorned with two spiral columns, that welcomes in the Central niche the statue of Saint Clare of Assisi.
