“outstanding basilica”

Basilica di Santa Croce
Book In Advance
Reviewed December 8, 2014

One of the nicest all over Italy. Exterior wall sculptures are very impressive. Dim lighting in the church does not override the decorative beauty.

A delicious example of "Baroque" of Lecce. Maybe external are more beautifill than interior, but absolutely to see it

Beautiful example of the incredible, Baroque style of the city. Unfortunately, the facade is under restoration so obscured somewhat by scaffolding - oh well, it has to be done!

This is one of the many outstanding Baroque churches in Lecce. The facade of this one has many unusual and fanciful creatures. We visited both in the morning and in the late afternoon to note the difference in natural light. Like most everywhere in that region, the church is closed midday. Make sure to adjust your plans accordingly.

The churches in Lecce are renowned for their over-the top architectural decoration, but this one beats the lot. It's got to be seen to be believed. Well worth a special visit.
