The cathedral with a bell tower and the surrounding square is monument to visit very interesting, as it offers a very impressive scenic view. Visit the square at night, when lights are turned on. It gets even more suggestive.

Of course, you can't miss it while you are in this lovely baroque town...but pay special attention to the absolute unique 'moon and sun' design on the cathedral wall - I never saw it before (besides, I was in 50 or so Italian towns)

This area is known for there works with Paper Mâché! They really look like works done in wood. The hands, feet and head are done of clay and threat of Paper.

The duomo is in the most amazing square, a must for an evening visit as when it is dark it takes on a magical atmosphere. The Duomo itself is certainly worth a visit.

Interesting large building on the central square in the old city of Lecce. Free to visit. Very baroque.

The square and the cathedral are superb. They must be visited. The architecture is wonderful and the colour of the stone is beautiful

Although you can see the tower of the duomo from far away definitely make your way to this piazza to be surrounded by the ornate architecture. When we went there weren't that many people round just one school group, which is kind of unheard of in many of Italy's great attractions.

The best part of this cathedral church was probably the large courtyard that it stands within. The bell tower is impressive and is a landmark which can be seen from most parts of the town. This helps visitors to get their bearings. The design of the new bronze doors especially commissioned for the visit of the Pope was somewhat disappointing.
