In the heel of the imaginable boot that makes out the contours of Italy, lies Lecce. A city fun to stroll through, enjoy the food, the warmth. Lecce makes a great jump spot to discover the rest of the Salento peninsula. I've used Lecce for that twice, once in the spring of 2018, and around when 2021 became 2022. A selection of photos from my two brief visits.

The dome of the Church of Saint Mary of the Carmel (Chiesa del Carmine)

Typical streets of Lecce's innercity, with Lecce limestone buildings everywhere.

The cathedral at Piazza del Duomo, or Cattedrale Maria Santissima Assunta e S.Oronzo. Photos below also taken at the square or in the area.

At the forefront two buildings connected: the palace (Palazzo del Seggio-Sedile) and the former church of San Marco.

The Roman amphitheater in the centre of the city.

Every Lecce street has its own surprises.
