Piazza del Duomo in Lecce

I count on the palm of my hand the travelers that I know personally and have visited the city of Lecce in the Italian region of Puglia. They all agree that it was a real surprise and I can't do anything else and join them in their appreciation.

Truly, the visit to Lecce during our journey through southern Italy surprised me as few European cities could do at this point. Also called Baroque florence overflowing with the multitude of palaces, churches and facades that beautifully decorate its untouched streets, so clean that the contrast that generates when compared to its neighboring Campaña and its capital, Naples in the lead, surprises. Indeed, the region of Puglia generally takes special care to keep its streets clean, and that changes completely when we go from the heel to the tip of the Italian boot.

We settle in a Bed & Breakfast on an independent basis just 50 meters from the Plaza del Duomo de Lecce. We slept a couple of nights and it came out for just 50 euros a night including breakfast. Daniela, the owner of the Corte dei Romiti B&B, just broke in to give us the keys and bring us breakfast in the morning. Inside we find a spacious clean apartment with an old kitchen that for practical purposes seemed to ask for a photo gallery thanks to its look Photogenic to be used for its purpose.

If you want to avoid searches and book accommodation on the same site that I can do it in the following link without any price increase:

With breakfast, a continental single, we had enough to enjoy Lecce through whose downtown streets we spent hours during our three days in the city. It is a delight to walk through a historic center closed to traffic and wander without noise or visual pollution of cars.

The baroque of Lecce is loaded with scenes, animals and figures along the facades that we find in the old town.
