The Stunning Basilica di Santa Croce
Mar 2020
It was nighttime when I visited the Duomo (Church) in Lecce; illuminated with lights all-around. A stunning piece of architecture with figures chiseled from stone and a large wood door at the entrance. My cousins and I started at that point and worked our way back through, stopping to dine along the way. The area was bustling which made it slightly difficult to park, but despite all of the people, we found a spot on the street before too long. There are shops, restaurants and cafés along the way and people of all ages. It's an amazing piece of history, this area, so read up on it before you go. I will most definitely go back to this and the surrounding areas which, luckily, are mainly overlooked by vacationers out-of-country.

Beautiful Italian Square and church
Sep 2020 • Friends
This is a stunning example of Italian architecture at its best, a beautiful Square, with a pretty clocktower, and a joy to see you both in the daylight and in the evening. The church inside has some beautiful stained-glass windows of the 12 apostles, and it costs €6 to go inside - but there is a joint ticket you can buy which means you can see a few of the main sites in Lecce

A beautiful and amazing Baroque style church. The visit is must. NOT 2 B MISSED.
Aug 2019
One of the most impressive churches we visited during our long trip to Italy. A most impressive church both in the exterior structure and especially in the incredible richness of all the works of art that fill the interior space of this amazing church.
Very impressive and highly recommended.

An impressive view of the Duomo
Feb 2020
Lecce is one of our favourite cities in Puglia, with its barocco leccese architecture. Entering the old town from the Porta Rudiae takes you directly to the Piazza del Duomo, for the Duomo di Lecce with its double facade and five-storey bell tower (campanile).

The interior is impressive. The cathedral has 12 altars. It cost a nominal amount to visit the crypts which was worth the cost.

Lecce is the city of 100 churches, so if you overlook this fear not - plenty other opportunity to admire where the wealth of Italy was amassed!

Dec 2019 • Friends
We didn’t have much time in Lecce and though it was raining, we wanted to visit the 2 most recommended places in the city: the Duomo and the Basilica of Santa Croce.
The Duomo is impressive, magnificent, we loved it!

Stunning architecture

This is a beautiful baroque duomo in a super open square in the old town. Take time to visit and don't forget your camera!

A jewel to discover
Nov 2019 • Solo
The barok cathedral is worth visiting but once you step down into the crypt, it represents a jewel to discover, beautiful put into scene with the lights...unfortunately, it is not allowed to take pictures, there is a reason why!

A lovely church on a pretty piazza
Sep 2019
This should be the first church you visit. It is a lovely church on a peaceful plaza. Take time to enjoy the exterior, the tower, the piazza, the other buildings on the piazza. They work so well together. Then buy an all-in-one ticket that admits you to the Duomo, Santa Croce, and other baroque churches. That's why you come here first. Inside the Duomo, take time to appreciate the ceiling, the side chapels, the main altar, and the (modern) crypt. Much of the best baroque architecture in Lecce is the work of Zimbalo. I never heard of him; he worked mostly in Lecce and created a beautiful city.
