  • Very very beautiful! It is an excellent starting point for exploring the historic city of Lecce, just follow the road that runs through it to get to Duomo and then in Piazza Sant'Oronzo.

  • Lecce is one of the old városkapuinak, which will remain in the outskirts, and one of the top of the statue of Sant Oronzo, who is the patron saint of the city.

  • One of the three ancient doors remained in Lecce. From here the road passing next to the Cathedral and Irene's door until piazza Sant'Oronzo. I found it less suggestive of Porta Napoli

  • The arch is very nice, the friezes and statues are in good condition. And the finest of the three ancient gates of the town. The point is quite busy and there are no panels or totem explaining what it represents and what is depicted. The square is not called Piazzale Rudiae, which is 500 meters away.

  • "The main entrance to the city and the baroque to neoclassicism art culture myths and legends" neoclassical and Baroque influences is the oldest of the three doors took its name from the ancient city destroyed Rudiae. Its present appearance is the result of a rebuilding in 1703 by Giuseppe Cino. It is surmounted by a statue of St. Oronzo's side are statues of St. Irene and s. Domenico, backing out of a frieze, supported by two columns and capitals, on which were carved busts of the mythical founders of the city: Mallenio, Dauno, Euippa and Idomeneo is the one which has the most direct access to the beautiful baroque city long taunted them we find the Church of the Rosary to follow the former Conservatory s. Anna later the Cathedral before arriving in piazza Santo Oronzo. Here we find typical restaurants where you can taste typical specialities as Pucce, lace, Turnovers you potatoes, Galzoni, papier-mâché Pasticciotto admire the shops very popular Rustic well into the night

  • Porta Rudiae is the most majestic gateway to the historic city of Lecce. It is accessed from Viale Portal giving you switch between modern City University and at Lecce a few centuries ago, feels like you are stepping back in time. From here the course going from Piazza del Duomo will take you to Piazza Sant'Oronzo.
