Basilica di Santa Caterina d'Alessandria

Reviewed By Geoff R - Melbourne, Australia

When you need a break from Baroque of Lecce, come here to Galantino. This Romanesque Cathedral built in the 14 th century is spectacular. The internal walls are covered with amazing frescos. The museum in the adjacent convent is also worth a visit. The town is very attractive and picturesque

Was so much fun a few years ago that we did it again last summer. As always Carlo and Katia are great people and full of patience too, especially when children are part of the group. Just a fun activity with family or friends, driving through a beautiful landscape. Try it. And thanks again to Carlo and Katia.

Piazza del Duomo

Reviewed By Bandit-One - Lucerne, Switzerland

Lecce is a lovely town. Even though big in size, the historic Centre is quite compact, easy to navigate and an easy walk.
The very highlight for us was the Piazza Del Duomo with its....well....Duomo. Makes some really great pictures. We came in high season on a sunday and expected huge crowds. How wrong we were. Only a handful of visitors on the Piazza and very little tourists in town in general. Looks like sundays are not so popular for visiting. Which was perfect for us. Made some really good pics. Just had to wait for the electric tourist "train" to leave, which messed up the scene.
It can get really hot in August here....maybe a reason for the low number of visitors. But if you don't mind the heat and the fact that many shops are closed, then sunday would be a perfect day to get great pics of the Duomo and Lecce in general.
The Duomo is a fantastic sight, maybe not as famous as the ones in Florence, Milano etc. But that doesn't make it less interesting. Surely not to be missed when in southern Italy.

Grotta della Poesia

Reviewed By maltese632017 - Norwich, United Kingdom

I've been there on several occasions hoping to swim in the grotta, but it's dominated by middle aged teenagers smoking grass and showing off, tomb stoning into the grotta. Meanwhile the actual area where it could be possible to swim is being bombarded by these tomb stoners, with people playing very unhip Bob Marley music at full volume and smoking grass. Not a place to take the family!

Every time we come here is like coming back to the best place on this wonderful planet! You can park at the Fico D'India and walk across the pine forest ( more or less 20 minutes) wear proper trainers or shoes cos u will go up and down rocks to reach the sea: incredible colours, water and scenery! One of the best places in Salento

The castle, recently restored, is a must see in Salento. The walls are cleaned up, the whole has been adjusted to enhance the beauty and the inside are open for visits. This allow anyone, tourists and locals, to fully appreciate the castle and understand it's importance in the history of this area and do so in a fantastic town like Corigliano that has a lot to offer to any type of traveller.

Centro Storico, Lecce

Reviewed By PointerDetroit - Detroit

Lecce is the largest town we visited over a 2 week stay in Puglia. In the city center there are Roman ruins which we appreciated more with the information provided by a guide. This was true of all the walkabout sites really - a guide provides details that bring the area to life. Nevertheless, even without a guide, you can have very fine walks in busy areas with grand edifices and small streets tucked away as well.
