This is a main square of Lecce. It is next to the Roman Amphitheater and is surrounded by interesting buildings. A statue of the patron saint of Lecce, Bishop (Saint) Oronzo is of interest.

Whether you enter Lecce’s historic centre from any of its historic gates, or otherwise, all roads lead to this central piazza.

Dominated by the Sant’Oronzo Column, a Roman column topped with a bronze statue of the city’s patron saint and the impressive Sedile (looking like an Apple store, but in reality the local tourist office) the piazza leads you to the sunken Roman amphitheatre. (Lecce has a second Roman amphitheatre that is tucked away in the old town but is also a must see - the Teatro Romano di Lecce).

In winter the square transforms into a wonderful Christmas market, specialising in chocolate treats and candied fruits, with some lovely Christmas lights to enjoy.

This lovely Piazza in the center of old town is where you will find the Roman Amphitheater, the palazzio di Seggio, and the column and statue of St Oronzo,the town's patron saint. It is worth a visit.

Whilst this isn't the square with the duomo, it somehow feels like the centre of the old town with lots going on. Tourist information is situated by the central ruins.

A very large and spacious open space surrounded by lovely buildings. The Roman amphitheater is on one side. Especially on weekends, it gets very crowded with many students and tourists plus locals. Families with little kids enjoy spending time or walking through this bright space. The tourist office is housed in a spectacular historical building.

No trip to Lecce is complete without spend some time in this square. It is unmissable the Roman amphiteatre that you can find here. It always great to see remains of the ancient Rome.

Nice central square that has Tourist information office, Amphitheatre and loads of restaurants. Recommend one called the Green House (or something similar) that has GREAT views from the roof. Nice beer. Fair few steps to the top though!
Also the main posh restaurant in the square(sorry don't know name) where you can have the local speciality coffee with almond milk
One issue was the hawkers that seemed to gather in the square and were a minor irritation

Located in the center of the old city, this piazza is home to a roman Amphitheater and surrounded by many commercial buildings. It is the happening place in Lecce at night.
