One of the three city gates to historical part of Lecce. Constructed in 18th century. Not so huge as Porta Napoli but still impressive. Dedicated to St Blais whose figure is presented on the top of the 17 metres high gate.

Not the most popular entrance to the baroque centre but is very well restored in its Baroque decoration and a popular destination with night life seekers. Very nice lighting at night too.
