Given that Lecce has a gorgeous, historic church on practically every block, I really struggled trying to pick a photo to sum up all of them. I’m not sure this one does completely, but it’s close.
Lecce is covered in beautiful carvings. On the buildings, in the buildings, around the buildings. This is but one example of many niches lining the walls of one of the churches (note the gate for scale). My goodness, it’s breathtaking.
