This church devoted to the patron of the city, has an amazing interior distribution and detail. A clear example of the Baroque period of Lecce.

What an amazing style of ornamentation. Exuberant doesn't really describe it. Lots of students sitting on the steps added to the charm.

This church is quite similar but less illustrious than Santa Croce. Make sure you enter and visit the beautiful altars on each side of the church.

Had to visit it for my mom. It's really worth to walk the few steps from Piazza Sant' Oronzo to this church. The two side altars are really special. Beware of self-appointed guides even if they seem knowledgeable.
