Twice to Lecce

During the 17th century, much of Lecce was decorated in an idiosyncratic Baroque style -
with elaborate new facades and interiors being created for many of the existing public
and religious buildings.

In the heart of the town there are also the remains of a Roman theatre and amphitheatre.
