  • Absolutely original il Duomo, with its square closed, surrounded by the Bishop's Palace, the duomo, the campanile. Facade and richly Baroque side. Not to be missed. Unfortunately we were there in the evening and we could only see the outside.

  • The Cathedral, located in the square is the Cathedral, dedicated to our Lady of the assumption. It was first built in 1144, then in 1230. Hours: 08:00-12:30, 16:00-20:00. To see.

  • The Metropolitan Cathedral of Lecce is dedicated to Maria Assunta and shining example of Baroque. A special feature of the Church is that the side door is the most richly decorated (with the usual Sant'Oronzo statue on top), but only because it dramatically more visible because right in front of the entrance gate to the streets, where the two small Propylaea The beautiful stone with which you built the Cathedral, like most buildings in Lecce, is seeing both day under the rays of the Sun, and night with the special and beautiful lighting. The Interior of the Cathedral is a Latin cross with a mix of various styles, from baroque to Rococo mostly, and you cannot miss the beautiful crypt full of columns as well as admire the beautiful wooden ceiling. Excluding entry into crypt, surcharge of 2 Euros, Cathedral access is completely free.

  • A very nice place in Central but quiet. Spotless. A great host. Elegant. Convenient. Good linen. Great comfortable bed. Convenient location to park your car nearby. Good in everything. I'll be back.

  • I was a guest at this bed and breakfast recently. I was visiting Lecce for work and I got to enjoy the great hospitality of this hotel, which define Bed & Breakfast seems a little simplistic. Located in a historic building, with high vaulted ceilings and Baroque stucco here and there, creating a lovely atmosphere, the Duomo offers spaces and environments that would be unthinkable in cities like Rome or Milan. Very kind then the managers, available and committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible. In my unfortunately brief stay in the capital of Salento I slept in a suite with a small living room/Hall, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom. Too bad spending just one night!

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.
