Known as “The Florence of the South", Lecce, the heart of Salento, is the easternmost city in Italy, rich in history and traditions, influenced by ancient Messapian origins, Roman culture and the enormous wealth of the Leccese Baroque.

Bright decorations enrich the buildings and enhance the intense tones of the local stone, a soft, compact limestone with warm, golden hues that is easily worked and cut. Walking through the streets of the city, you can admire the beautiful examples of the processing of this stone on monuments, churches as well as the balconies and terraces of private homes, enjoying the colours and unique fragrances of this unforgettable land.
