Lecce and the Baroque Architecture

Lecce is one of the finest example of the Italian Baroque style.

Walking into the city you can discover very beautiful and scenic corners, but the most evidence of the artistic soul of Lecce can be find in churches and palaces.

The Dome and other important churches such us Santa Teresa Church and Sant’Anna Church, are stunning with their decorations, but the most beautiful is probably Santa Croce Cathedral together with Palazzo dei Celestini, now home for the government of Province.

The city centre’s old streets are now home to many little restaurants and pubs, where people can try the original taste of this land.
