A lovely church

Set in the centre of the old town in a piazza the Duomo is one of the main buildings in Lecce to visit. Our visit coincided with a baptism, which made it the more enjoyable.

A very nice duomo, peaceful and serene. The square is quite pretty and a good place for people watching.

Probably the most memorable place in Lecce. Huge plaza, stunning tower, massive cathedral. Baroque in style. Church is very much used...in two days we saw a funeral and a wedding. Makes it difficult to view with services going on, but well worth it. We just sat and watched and become part of the congregation. A living church in a fantastic... More

Walking around the old town of Lecce is like going back in time 1000 years. It is so beautifully kept, clean for the most part and the jewel in the crown has to be the Piazza Duomo di Lecce. There is this stunning architecture, outside and inside the church and surrounding buildings and I've added a couple of photos for... More

Another Baroque masterpiece, Lecce just keeps offering them up. Built in 1114, then renovated in the 13th century. In 1659, it was rebuilt by Giuseppe Zimbalo, who was one of the three architects involved with Santa Croce Basilica. The 68 metre high bell tower is also the work of Zimbalo. There are two entries off the piazza and both have... More

Lecce Baroque at its finest. The Duomo began life as a Norman edifice, then various things were glommed onto it over the centuries. There is a bit of a Miss Havisham feel to the interior - it's a bit dark and dusty, which adds to the mystique. Don't miss the crypt downstairs.

An interesting building and certainly worth visiting while in Lecce. Not sure if any other similar churches have two main entrances like the Duomo here. The piazza outside is a magnificent open space in the old town and quite unexpected if you come in through the side entrance on the other side.

The Duomo, along with an impressive number of other Baroque sites found throughout Lecce, amaze, shock, baffle, inspire and confuse as one passes beyond the entry doors of these gilded treasures. How do we reconcile the reductionism, spirituality and values of a religion's central figure with the elaborate, kaleidoscopic, extravagant, hyperbolic electric impressionism of the deck of cards a player...

The Duomo is as the name suggests one of the major churches in Lecce. The bell tower is impressive. If you are touring Lecce it is worth a visit.

This is a fascinating area of Lecce to tour. We recommend that it not be missed. Take the tram tour to get a good overview. At ten Euros, it is worth it.
