What to expect

Lecce, the Baroque masterpiece of southern Italy, described as the "Florence of the Baroque" or the "Rome of the South", has a long traditional affinity with Greek culture, going back to its foundation. The capital of Salento appeals for a unique combination of folklore, attractions, art and exciting scents. Admire the Cathedral, a wonderful example of baroque style, the former Convent of the Celestines, the Holy Cross Church, a symbol of the baroque style in Lecce built in 1646, the Arch of Triumph, erected in 1548 to pay homage to Charles V, and the churches of Saint Matthew, Saint John the Baptist and Saint Mary of the Graces.

Otranto is the "Gateway to the East", the easternmost point of Italy, overlooking the strait that bears its name, the Strait of Otranto, connecting the Adriatic Sea with the Ionian Sea and separating Italy from Albania. Despite the destruction suffered, the Old Town is very well preserved, with its houses painted in bright colors, enclosed in fortified walls. The Aragonese Castle, the Cathedral, consecrated in 1088, and the church of San Pietro with Byzantine frescoes are the main sights of the city.
