ABOUT LECCE

651-lecce Lying on a plain at the foot of the Salento Plateau is Lecce - the "Florence of the South" - one of the most interesting cities in the region for its architecture, typical of the 17th Century. Of ancient origins, the city experienced two distinct periods of prosperity in its history: the Roman era and that of the rule of the Kingdom of Naples. Under both, construction of buildings, monuments and mansions increased heavily. These new structures were characterized by a magnificent and rich ornamentation that earned this typical architecture the definition of “Leccese Baroque." The imaginative and meticulous sculpting work was facilitated by the use of local stone, flexible and easy to inlay.

ACROSS SALENTO

Torre SantAndrea Lecce Salento is a peninsula located at the south-eastern Italy, in area commonly called the “heel of Italy”. The charm of this small sub-region immediately wins the tourists. The coast lines and the sea are certainly among the most beautiful in Italy. Coasts alternates, in fact, impressive cliffs  to long beaches (maps) of extra fine white sand. This is why a part of Salento’s coast is romantically called “Maldives”. The must for the “New comer” in Salento is to visit Otranto, Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca. Otranto is a small-fortified town perched on the Adriatic coast, with greek origin; gorgeous the Aragonese castle that dominates the city. Do not miss the cathedral and its beautiful mosaic floor, which is recognized as one of the most important Italian medieval works. Located on the opposite side, on the Ionian Sea, is Gallipoli, a lovely little town with the singular historical center built in a peculiar “pan shape” and characterized by a maze of narrow streets. Last but not least, the end, or beginning, of Italy: Santa Maria di Leuca, built on the very tip of the peninsula, where the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea join.
