Came here for the 18th birthday party of a friend of mine. It was great! The food was more than amazing, and the location was elegant in a rustic style. The service could have been better - not all the waiters were kind as the environment required.

The rabbit and the crispy pork were both inventive and really interesting dishes. Resteraunt has a fine outdoor setting. They were very busy when we were there but they gave us time checks on when the food would be arriving

This hotel in a castle was fascinating and lovingly restored. Understated decorating that exudes class. The room and bathroom were comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Restaurant area with palm trees and plants and sunlight streaming in through the leaves was lovely. There are seating areas off this atrium that are little nests where guests can curl up with a book,... More

The Hotel Torre del Parco is situated just short of the old city. It’s a fine and very fancy historic hotel in buildings going back to the 15th century. One has to ring to have the gate opened; several servants came to take our luggage, and I was able to park the car only a short distance away for 1.50... More

What a wonderful hotel!!! Set in a medieval convent built in 1600 and also contains a tower that was used a a prison! Within walking distance of the gate into the historical center of the town. The rooms are magnificent! The details and furnishings are fabulous! The inner courtyard contains huge old trees that provide wonderful shade and atmosphere. Luisa,... More

Torre del Parco is a beautiful and historic building dating back to 1419, conversion to hotel has been done sympathetically preserving it's grandeur and character, at the same time creating contemporary and comfortable rooms. We found the staff to be very helpful, giving tips on parking, map, directions etc. There's a wide range of choice at breakfast including fruit, meats,... More

We stayed at this hotel in late June, and we were very pleased with it. Yes, it is a little tricky to find the front gate and buzz for entry, but once inside, you are in a different world. The hotel has been built in an old castle, and all the improvements are very appealing. After passing through a small... More

You can wander around the castle and explore at your own leisure. The rooms are amazing. The breakfast is excellent. A different but very special hotel. The only problem is finding the front door when you arrive. Parking available next to the hotel.

We stayed her in June 2012. We happened to stay during the week when there was no real large groups/functions happening at the hotel. The hotel is easy to find, though the entrance was not. There is a large, locked gate. You must ring the bell to get in. Parking is on a nearby street for 1.50 Euro a day.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Torre del Parco (Turris Prati Magni) is located in the heart of Lecce and it is the Medieval and Renaissance symbol of the city. The monumental complex was built in 1419 by the Prince of Taranto Giovanni Antonio Orsini del Balzo. It includes the Tower, taller than 30 meters and surrounded by a deep moat, the Prince’s Palace, where he had established the Mint of State and the civil and penal Tribunal, and the Convent of the friars. The rooms of the Historic House are located in the old Convent which was built in 1600 on the walls of the fifteenth-century manor. In the morning you can enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast with typical selected products in the halls of the Palace or in the garden with the tall palm trees and the centuries-old elms. The Royal Suite with the four-poster bed and the large whirlpool bath with chromotherapy is the ideal place to relax and find comfort. The room is linked directly to the Wellness Area where you can enjoy a rejuvenating massage. ... more   less
