    Bellissimo il duomo, in a square full of life, especially recommended to visit in the evening hours, to appreciate the presence of the people, together with a skilful lighting. For the visit of the Cathedral, it is recommended to visit during the day. Well worth a visit.

    Totally original square, with the Cathedral on the one hand, the majestic Bell disconnected from it and surrounded by the Bishop's Palace. Very charming at night, don't miss it.

    We knew the leccese Baroque was magnificent but arrive in the evening in Piazza del Duomo with the lights that illuminated the facades of the Cathedral, the Archbishop's Palace, the Museum and the Bell Tower made the surprise even more fascinating. It feels like being in a theatrical scenery, fabulous of course. Moreover, the different positions of the buildings give a sense of depth and charm that only the magic of the theatre with scenic solutions can give. Then beyond the positioning, we're still talking about buildings lavishly decorated Baroque shapes but not overladen style and heavy, but enjoyable read. So a surprise evening which then we repeated under the glaring sun.

  • IT: Un gioiello dell'architettura barocca, tutto da vedere! EN: It's a gem from the baroque period. It's all to see here, simply beautiful!
  • In my opinion, the most beautiful piazza in Italy
  • The most beautiful and suggestive of Lecce. To see especially in the evening.

  • Impressive! My only regret is not being able to see how it used to be, namely with the fountain of winged horses. The bigotry of the time (1957) denied to our generations to admire the work of the brothers Peluso, deemed obscene by the mother superior (cause genital depiction of horses). Unfortunately we have to be content of historical photos ...

  • The historic square of the city. In the square there is a statue of St. Oronzo and seat, primary monuments, together with the Roman amphitheatre, near the wonderful Church of Santa croce emblem of the famous baroque.

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.
