I am not a lover of baroque architecture, I prefer something less ornate, unless it is Byzantine.. I was not expecting to like this Cathedral but it was totally enchanting. I was quiet overwhelmed by it , it is very very beautiful but Rococo, it has a wonderful unity. One should not miss it.

I have an opinion that most of baroque churches in Lecce (there are 43...) are much more appelaing when looked from the outside than inside The dome and its square are simply unique

Beautiful architecture set in a charming square. A great place for photos and a nice meeting place. A must-see in Lecce.

The duomo is situated in a pretty square just off one of the main streets in the historical centre. The square makes the duomo look majestic, especially on a sunny day. Inside is equally impressive with the beautiful sculptures and paintings. It's just a pity that the bell tower is currently closed to visitors due to reconstruction works. I hope... More

Get the walking tour to get the story. Big open square, originally designed to hold the entire population of the area, flanked by a beautiful architecture: A tall bell-tower (tallest structure in Lecce), a cathedral, the bishops residence and a seminary.

I just loved seeing the Dome, as well as walking around in the historical center of Lecce. Only a few cars driving past (Italian style, watch out!), nice little restaurants and bars with tasty food.....I loved it and will do my best to go back... I enjoy walking around and just getting the feeling of places, I did like this... More

The Duomo is located in a beautiful baroque square, only accessible through a quite narrow space between two buildings. The peculiarity of the Church is its "fake facade" that gives you the illusion to be entering by the principal door of the church.. and once you're in, you realize you actually entered from a secondary door.

An astounding building both inside, outside and underneath. I was suffering post traumatic church disorder by the time I got here, however, it is such a dramatic building I was completely recovered by the time I left. The crypt is a highlight.
