This walking tour will inform you about the papier-mâché tradition thanks to a visit to a local craft workshop. Start the tour at Piazza del Duomo. To begin with, the guide is walking in the marvelous city of Lecce, where you will learn more about the history by passing through St. Irene Church, built between 1591 and 1639 for the Theatines and dedicated to the city’s patron saint. The walk will continue to St.Oronzo Square, the largest square within the city walls, the happening center of Lecce, and the site of the Roman Amphitheater ruins.
The tour continues to the Church of the Holy Cross, a Baroque-style structure completed in 1695. The church has a richly decorated façade, with six smooth columns supporting an entablature, with animals, grotesque figures, and vegetables, and has a large rose window. Not to be missed is the Celestine Palace, built over several centuries, the oldest part of which dates back to the first half of the XIV century.
Walk back in history with the guide by visiting the St. Chiara Church; a famous church admired in Lecce for its baroque style. The ceiling is 18th-century Leccese cartapesta (papier-mâché) masquerading as wood. And how could we not go to the heart of Lecce? Built-in the second century AD, the Roman Theatre was long forgotten, covered by gardens and palaces, and absorbed by the 18th century. A real historical and cultural gem in the heart of the city.
The St. Matteo Church, one of the loveliest churches known by locals as the Santa Marloveliestla Luce, is known for its baroque style and architecture. Walking in the history, the guide will take to the southernmost of the three gates to the old center of Lecce, dedicated to San Biagio, bishop of Sebaste in Armenia in the 4th century.
It is located near Piazza d’Italia. You will taste the “pasticciotto leccese” and have a good cup of Italian coffee in one of the best bars in the town.
