It was under construction outside when we visited but inside it was the baroque splendour we expected. It was a great architectural experience. Must-see in Lecce.

Actually I has been to Italy so many times. One of my favorite places was here " Basilica di Santa Croce (Lecce)" There was beautiful and full of history sine 16th and 17th centuries. Every steps were the story and arts.

The exterior is under reservation. We visited in a late afternoon and had no problem of getting in. The interior was very ornate with plaster sculptures and decorations. Since we had been to Sicily and visited the baroque churches there, this one is less impressive

It is currently under renovation (September 2017), so the facade is hidden by a scrim that is a photo of the real thing. Our guide explained the fascinating details and symbolism of the carvings. Inside are two glorious statues that turned out to be of - paper mache!
