Lecce, not just baroque
Chief town of Salento, a land of surprising and varied beauty
Lecce is the chief town of Salento, a land of surprising and varied beauty at the southernmost tip of the Italian peninsula. This is a city where the taste and talent of past generations have still something to tell to visitors, and where small stone treasures still gloriously withstand the passing of time.
Despite its overflowing decoration, Lecce's Baroque has the unique power of never appearing exaggerated. The variety and elegance of its productions are never banal. Though solemn and sumptuous, the constructions are still marked by a sense of lightness that reveals a sincere joy of life. The lively ornaments and expressive stone figures are never cloying and cheerfully accompany visitors along their walks.
