  • The Church of Jesus is evidently been built taking which inspired the most famous and great Church of Jesus of the Roman square. Like the one in Rome, this is considered not only the Church of the Jesuit order but also an icon of the Counter Reformation. The façade carries the hallmarks of what was the Church after the Council of Trent. Not as richly decorated as other baroque churches, but it's still very interesting. Inside the spectacular altar made of local stone, which we were lucky enough to see since the Church was one of the few open.

  • I always give 5 stars to the churches and then in the description say the reasons to visit it or not because in Italy there are no churches until the beginning of 900 nasty! This struck me the apse, the rest to see but not to the levels of the other churches of Lecce! I visited long ago and I have many memories so take this review with a grain of salt!

  • The Church on the outside is not up to par with other religious buildings in Lecce but it is still pretty. The Interior is quite simple in its architecture and decoration. What sumptuous altar is jaw-dropping example of decorations and Baroque architecture. To see!

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.
