Lecce Cathedral (Duomo di Lecce) Tours

Lecce’s main church is the Duomo, or the Lecce Cathedral, which sits on the aptly-named Piazza del Duomo. The first cathedral on was built in the mid-12th century, though the church we see today dates mostly from the 17th century.

There are two entrances to the Duomo. The secondary entrance is dedicated to the city’s patron saint, and both are Baroque masterpieces. Next to the cathedral is the Bishop’s Palace, which also dates from the 17th century and is the home of Lecce’s Archbishop. Next to that is the 18th-century Seminary Palace, which today contains a Museum of Sacred Art. There is also a cloister inside the Seminary Palace that is open to the public. Looming over everything in the square is the 230-foot-tall bell tower.

The Piazza del Duomo is a stop on many tours of Lecce, though not all tours venture inside the buildings that surround the square. Walking tours and especially private tours are the best options if you want a more in-depth tour of the interior of the cathedral and other buildings on the piazza.

Practical Info

There is only one entrance into the Piazza del Duomo, so it’s not a square people pass through. It is, however, the religious center of the city.
