Lecce is a town where you can admire the baroque style on steroids that makes it unique.
The Leccese Baroque is an architectural style that developed in Puglia during the 17th and the 18th centuries when the bishops decide to reaffirm their power and authority. It is one of the flagships of the art here in the region, along with the Romanesque style.

The city of Lecce was indeed the ultimate expression of this architectural style that later spread throughout the Salento sub region and other cities in Apulia

The Leccese baroque is the result of the work and fantasy of architects and skilled craftsmen and masons who were able to work a valuable and unique stone, characteristic of the area: the local stone extracted in the countryside surrounding the town was a calcareous limestone, soft and easy to work. It was molded by skilled hands who created beautiful facades of churches, balconies, windows, doors and thousands of statues that still today adorn churches and palaces.
