  • I've got to admire this square at different times of the year, and I've always found it well maintained and quite lively. Two of the key features of the square, the column of Sant'Oronzo (patron of the city) whose statue in fact stands atop the big pillar. and the Roman amphitheatre at Christmas time becomes a big crib, with characters placed in the context of historical artifacts. From here you can easily reach other monuments of the famous baroque: many churches that are situated around and in particular the dome with its square.

  • Piazza Sant'Oronzo is living in the city. The imposing Roman column that holds the bronze statue of the Saint, Let Us pause a bit in front of the amphitheatre where they set up a nice crib. The amphitheatre Augustan age, discovered in 1923 during the building of the Bank of Italy remained two-thirds still hidden, as it is located beneath the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, dating back to the 14th century. In the middle of the square there is the seat, cuboid building with pointed arches and rich decorations, built in 1552 as a venue for hearings and meetings. Beside the Church of San Marco seat.

  • Piazza Sant'Oronzo is the most important square of Lecce. There is a statue of Sant'Oronzo the patron saint of the city and the beautiful amphitheatre. From here there's a lot of people walking towards Piazza Mazzini and across towards the Cathedral.
