We thought the square was beautiful and looked fantastic at night. We went to the museum and had a guided tour with only us for 8 euros for two. The guide was amazingly informative and knew her art history not only of Lecce but italian and French art. Don't just visit the duomo or the cloister the museum was fantastic

Just unique. Try to get there when not over-run with German or Swiss Tourists! The square is basically completely intact, original, almost unbelievably beautiful!

That was true during afternoon wait for it to open, and... More

considering it was built in baroque style several hundred years ago and a significant piazza remains to "show off" the church it is a very significant part of lecce's historical past. Marvelous
