Beautiful piazza supports the facade

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.
