Lecce

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Located in the province of Salento, between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Lecce is the city of Baroque. Its old town, partially surrounded by fortification walls, is the area which best expresses the splendour of the 17th century. Once called the "Athens of Apulia" due to the intensity of the artistic movement between the 17th and 18th centuries, Lecce is home to an architectural richness. It was long the chosen site for numerous religious orders, the traces of which can be seen in Lecce's many churches.
