Basilica di Santa Croce

Lecce, known as 'Firenze del Barocco' for the beauty of its buildings in the warm local stone, surprises visitors at every step. The Basilica di Santa Croce is perhaps the most representative example of its amazing baroque style. The work of more than one architect, the facade is decorated with numerous Christian symbols. Six columns mark the lower part of the facade, while above the baluster is crowded with sculptures and a splendid rose window dominates the upper part.
