Lecce, the Baroque capital in the world !

 

The tour start at 5pm (leaving you plenty of time to enjoy first a full day on the sea) and will take you to discover the wonderful monuments of the historic Center of Lecce : from Sacred architecture to  civilian . The guided tour includes a visit to Porta Napoli (Napoli Gate), one of the entrances to the old city with its massive Triumphal Arch erected in honor of Charles V the King. The Palace of the seminary, the Bishop’s Palace and the Campanile , you can admire the splendid  Duomo Square Cathedral that stands up to 77 meters in height ( the undisputed pride of Lecce). Continue to the Church of Sant ‘ Irene , the first patron saint of the city; we’ll take you then to St. Oronzo Square with its most representative monuments (The Roman Column of St. Oronzo , the seat , the church of St. Mark ‘s Venice and the remains of the splendid Roman Amphitheatre ) and the Cathedral of Santa Croce , the emblem of Lecce Baroque , whose façade was made by different architectures. The Santa Croce Cathedral itself is worth a trip to Salento . And at the end of this tour that will leave you open-mouthed, we will take you to  Santa Chiara Square ( one of the most  charming squares of this city ​​) , where we’ll offer you a tantalizing appetizer that will make even more  magical the sunset on Lecce: Baroque Capital of the World !
