Chiesa del Gesù

The Chiesa del Gesù was designed in 1575 by the Como born Jesuit priest Giovanni De Rosis. On the portal we can recognise the coat of arms of the Compagnia di Gesù (the Jesuits). In the streets around the church we find delightful examples of baroque architecture, marked by the decorations sculpted in the warm stone of Lecce.
