Beautiful Duomo, the Duomo can be seen from many miles away. You would not expect to see such beautiful architecture when you see the Duomo from a distance. The little square with the churches is amazing, a must see when visiting Lecce

The interior of the duomo is somewhat dull compared with other churches in Lecce, but its location the its private square is astonishing: the architecture is wonderful.

Very beautiful church. Especially after dark. The lights really add a lot of grandur to it. So try to visit at night. A special Capella painted in blue is very very beautiful.

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.
