Lecce and the Baroque style

The Baroque in Lecce is a typical artistic and architectural style that developed between the end of the XVI century and the first half of the XVIII century, above all in Lecce and in the rest of the Salento; it is recognizable thanks to its gaudy decorations that feature the buildings. The style, influenced by the Spanish Plateresque, spread in the Salento at the half of the XVII century thanks to some local architects such as Giuseppe Zimbalo.

The Salento

The inhabitants of this area, that includes the whole province of Lecce, almost all that one of Brindisi and part of that one of Taranto, distinguish themselves above all due to their linguistic features. According to an historical point of view, the Salento was part, for many centuries, of the ancient district called Terra d'Otranto.
