  • Amazing baroque delight in Lecce! Located in a nice piazza, with tickets being sold nearby, in the information office. The family ticket is a value of money, and would recommend to get if you are not alone. *Tip: Look for the secret underground area (Photos posted but shhh)
  • A delightfully eclectic and architectual surprise as you enter piazza, the church interior is artistically vibrant and stunning.
