Archtecture all around
Sep 2019
Wherever you look there is some landmark in terms of archtecture. It is a bit different because The Chiesa is not the main element here. Normally the churches rule the place and get the focus of a spot like this but the whole place is a mix of huge elements. The tower, for example has three levels looking like a castle top. Once they are a continuous building it will look even bigger when you step here. Even crowded there is room for good pictures. Nice experience.

Make sure you stop off here!

When visiting be sure to wear your sunglasses when the sun is shining - and in Salento it usually is. Like Lecce itself the glare of the sun on the limestone is dazzling.

Entering the old town from the Porta Rudiae en route to the centre of the old town takes you directly to the Piazza del Duomo, for the Cattedrale di Lecce with its double facade and five-storey bell tower or campanile. It’s an impressive view.

At Christmas the piazza hosts a wonderful nativity scene - the traditional presepe - which includes much more than the stable. This year the duomo had a wonderful projection of snowflakes making it so wonderfully atmospheric.

Beautiful architecture and piazza
Oct 2019
Stand in the center of the piazza and turn 360 to take in the Baroque architecture. This is a piece of history to enjoy. The outside is as beautiful as it is inside. Return after sunset to see it once again lite up after dark..

Beautiful Piazza
Dec 2019
The Piazza was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season - I traveled there in December 2019. At night, the lights were especially beautiful.

Beautiful space

This is a beautiful big space and with great baroque architecture. Take some time to wander round the edges and appreciate the buildings.

Various buildings fit together well as a whole
Sep 2019
This is an impressive square in the middle of Lecce with the Duomo (cathedral) and its Campanile (belltower) the Bishops House and its seminary. The square was being set up for an evening concert when we were there and the sound testing detracted rather from the atmosphere but the overall impression was still terrific with the ornate building fitting together well as a whole

Do not believe it is better than Firenze
Sep 2019 • Couples
I have heard it is better than Firenze. Not really true. One of many towns, you may see in Italy almost anywhere. Nothing spectacular.
