Lecce and Salento

Lecce is considered the capital of Baroque architecture. The old city’s alleyways exude artistic flair; the many baroque churches, the small honey-coloured buildings and the elegant, secluded courtyards tell a story which is entrenched in tradition.

With a cultural and artistic heritage ranging from Lecce stone carving to papier-mâché religious art, through to folk music and traditional cuisine, Lecce and Salento are amongst Italy’s most beautiful treasures. 150 km of coastline provide many enchanting sights, places to discover and experiences to make your holiday truly unforgettable.
