Called "Florence of the South", Lecce is the provincial capital of the Salento area.
Salento, the heel of Italy, is nestled in the clear waters of the Adriatic and Ionian coasts, where tall cliffs sculpted by the sea alternate with sandy beaches, green stretches of maquis and a small "eden" reachable only by boat.
The city was founded around 2,000 years old and by the 15th century had become one of the most important cities in southern Italy.
Over this period Lecce was decorated with important Baroque Monuments and under threat from an Ottoman invasion, Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, rebuilt the defenses of the city along with a new castle.
Because of the soft limestone that's easy to work, Lecce became the center for the ornate architecture called the Barocco Leccese and the city is filled with Baroque Monuments.
Also notable are traditional handicrafts, especially the art of paper mache'.
Lecce Cathedral is also one of the most significant cathedrals in Italy.
It was originally built in 1144, and rebuilt in 1230.
The Roman Amphitheater is well preseved and is an impressive sight positioned at the side of Sant'Oronzo Square in the centre of Lecce.
