This church is nice such as the other churches in Lecce. The characteristic of this church is that the upper part of the facade is missing. I think has been damaged and just fallen in the past.

Of all the churches I visited this was my favourite. The interior is surprisingly bright given the dark wooden ceiling. A beautiful altar with some lovely pictures in the individual chapels. Worth a visit on a walking tour around Lecce. Personally, I think this church is more worthy of a visit than Santa Croce.

A very beautiful church. Next to it is a big hotel , and it looks as though they have a restaurant. We just walked by and the piazza was wide and impressive.

Rather unusual, this baroque church has a single octagonal nave - a more intimate setting than the wide other baroque churches in Lecce. Look at the ceiling - it's papier-maché. Worth a stop once you are in the downtown centre.

One of my favourites. I was right next to our B&B so the first one we visited. It's small but lovely inside.

This little church was surprisingly ornate inside. The art and architecture are beautiful.
