Welcome to LECCE
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG

Information about LECCE Since ancient times, its strategic position in the centre of the Mediterranean had favoured the meeting between different cultures and had also made it become a conquered land by different peoples. The signs of the Roman heritage in Lecce are a II century A.D. amphitheatre, a theatre of the same period and St Cataldo’s harbour, situated 10 Km far from the town. After the separation from the Roman Empire, the town remained under the dominion of the Eastern Empire until the 11th century, when it was conquered by the Normans. After a dark period in the Middle Ages, the town flourished again as a cultural and humanistic centre during the 15th century, under the Aragonese monarchy. During the 16th and 17th century Spanish dominion, the town got enriched from the architectural and urban point of view. The town passed under the Austrian dominion for a short time in 1700 and then to the Borbonis. Lecce the pink city, the Florence of the Baroque, the gleaming gem of Apulia, is nowdays characterized by extremely ornate carvings that cover the entire surface of churches and palazzi rarely visited by foreign travelers. The coastal road is lined with massive, almost Moorish villas, adorable flocks of grazing sheep and the deep turquoise waters of the Adriatic.Lecce sits on the southeastern tip of Italy's boot, waiting to stupefy with its little-known magnificence.
