  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
