Baroque City of Lecce Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

All that remains of the 16C ramparts that encircled the historic centre of Lecce are the castle and a few remnants of the town's defences. A ring of avenues now delineates the centre, at the heart of which is the lively Piazza San Oronzo, the small church of San Marco and the old Palazzo del Seggio. To the south side of the square the remains of a Roman amphitheatre have been discovered. Other monuments worth looking out: San Matteo (17C), the Piazza del Duomo surrounded by Baroque façades, Chiesa del Rosario and the basilica of Santa Croce.
