  • Walking through the streets of the old town in a lovely evening of March, I found myself in this square. The views ranged in 360 giving strong emotions. I promised myself to come back during the day.

  • Beautiful square, surrounded by palaces and the Cathedral, another example of Apulian barocco, whose beautiful Lecce is full.

  • Lecce is a lovely town. Even though big in size, the historic Centre is quite compact, easy to navigate and an easy walk. The very highlight for us was the Piazza Del Duomo with its....well....Duomo. Makes some really great pictures. We came in high season on a sunday and expected huge crowds. How wrong we were. Only a handful of visitors on the Piazza and very little tourists in town in general. Looks like sundays are not so popular for visiting. Which was perfect for us. Made some really good pics. Just had to wait for the electric tourist "train" to leave, which messed up the scene. It can get really hot in August here....maybe a reason for the low number of visitors. But if you don't mind the heat and the fact that many shops are closed, then sunday would be a perfect day to get great pics of the Duomo and Lecce in general. The Duomo is a fantastic sight, maybe not as famous as the ones in Florence, Milano etc. But that doesn't make it less interesting. Surely not to be missed when in southern Italy.
  • 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
  • Piazza Duomo is one of the main squares of Lecce. Here is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (il Duomo), the Bell Tower, the Bishop's Palace, and the Palace of the seminary. Cathedral square is a clear example of Baroque, and is one of the rare examples of "piazza", that is completely closed on three sides and has only one access. Is a beautiful square and, together with the Cathedral, and everything that surrounds it, making it a fantastic place. Both local people and tourists are very attracted to this square to the point of having to see it whenever you are in the area. Worth visiting.
