    The statue of St. Oronzo, protector of the city, stands on a tall column, in the central square of the city. Very original.

    Funny story or legend of the column, on which is placed the statue of the patron saint of Lecce, from Brindisi. In fact it is one of the two Roman columns that marked the end of the road consoling Appia: the people of Brindisi say was stolen by Lecce, while they say they have been donated by the people of Brindisi. Beyond who has reason on the column, the statue of Sant'Oronzo is situated right on the square named for him, after the city decided to change patron (by Irene to Oronzo) and it looks like, for those who believe, he's there to watch and protect your fellow citizens, although often in piazza happens a little bit of everything as the lovely wine-tasting event that we found in the days when we were present, namely around the first week of August, but not only.

    The column erected to the patron saint of the city to Sant'Oronzo is really impressive. On its Summit the statue of the Saint. Dominates the square called the Saint himself.

  • Bella. Nice little story behind this statue, where they say: If you are a university student, you will never watch s. Oronzo, otherwise you do not graduate.

  • Lecce is really beautiful and hospitable, the patron Sant'Oronzo common also in Ostuni BR, here in the square has a majestic high column approximately 30 meters.

Where to stay in Lecce
