  • Intrigued by the reviews, we visited this beautiful private museum, split across multiple tiers, where successive testimonials from different historical periods. At the entrance greeted us a nice lady, who then discovered to be the wife of the spelunker who discovered the deer cave, located near Otranto. For this reason, inside the Museum there is a room that exposes the original equipment used by speleologists when they discovered the cave. No guided tours are envisaged, but the entrance provides a small guide that describes in detail the various environments. Very low ticket prices, I recommend it.

  • Absolutely incredible. Small space that has pieces and examples of the long history of Lecce. Self guided is a bit hard to follow but there is a handout with information. Among the most interesting historical sites I've ever seen in the salento over the many years I've been here
  • "Whenever you dig a hole, centuries of history come out". This is a really interesting place to visit and something different to the many churches and cathedrals that this area boasts.
  • Interesting history. Could use some update maybe
  • Very interesting place where history comes alive. The family that discovered the house guides very lively!
  • We had a very good time in this museum. A dz Templar House that is full of surprise at a small price (€3)

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.
