The Puglia/Molise region
Apulia: a land of music, art and history. Apulia is a borderland where art, music and cultural events contribute to enrich local tourism. Film and theater seasons in important historical theaters or in fantastic open-air settings showing world-famous dramas as well as interesting plays in vernacular. Apulia also hosts the Festival della Valle d’Itria (Itria Valley Festival), with important Opera plays, and the world famous Notte della Taranta (Taranta Night), with traditional Salento music and dance. Finally, the many diverse Summer festivals and seasons hosted in Apulian towns, cities and villages are an expression of Apulian people's warmth that one should not want to miss.
Lecce has been dubbed the Florence of the south. Whereas many people (not understandably) skip it in favour of the nearby beach towns of the Salento peninsula, this city, distinguished by its elaborate style of baroque buildings, has at least a couple of days of attractions worth seeing, not to mention the best restaurants and bars. Being central to the peninsular Lecce is the ideal position from which to explore the whole of salento.
Piazza S. Oronzo - Situated in the heart of the city and named after the patron saint's statue erect in 1666 after the population had defeated the plague which had broken out ten years before.
Cathedral - A wonderful example of baroque style, most of the cathedral was designed by G.Zimbalo, the most celebrated architect of that time. He also designed the five floor belfry (1682).
Porta Napoli - Also know as Arch of Triumph, it was erected in 1548 to pay homepage to Charles V and thank him for having fortified the town. Twenty metres tall, the arch is situated in a square named after it, where S.Giusto once was.
The Obelisk - Was erected in 1822 thanks to Vito Carluccio at the time when Ferdinando I Borbone came to visit the town.
Paisiello Theatre - Once the permanent theatre of the town. Founded in 1758 and rebuilt in 1870, it was opened with the performance of Giuseppe Verdi' s 'Un ballo in maschera". Because of its rich decorations, this theatre - which can only contain 320 spectators - is nicknamed "The wedding souvenir".
The Holy Cross Church - Is a symbol of the baroque style in Lecce buil in 1646, thanks to three well-know architects - Gabriele Riccardi, who devoted himself to the general plan and the lower part of the facade; Francesco Antonio Zimbalo who made the twin column porch and the portal aside; Cesare Penna who conceived the high level of the facade. The big Romanesque central rose window, the rich frame, the four columns, and the niches as well as the telamons, the imaginay creatures, the animals, the mythological and historical characters of the facade are all what makes this church unique and renowned over the world.
The city of Lecce has managed to carve a reputation for itself and it’s nightlife for all the right reasons. Beautiful atmosphere, not to heavy on the wallet and above fun! Happy partying!
As mentioned there are lots of open air event organized troughout the summer, great concert venues, many great clubs in stunning locations, and much more to discover!
