Piazza Sant’Oronzo

Piazza Sant’Oronzo

The Heart of Lecce

While in Lecce we will explore the ruins at the Piazza Sant’Oronzo, an ancient site of incredible beauty and historical significance.

Home to some impressive ruins, including a Roman amphitheater and column, this site offers a glimpse into the city’s past. The amphitheater dates to the 2nd century AD and is one of the largest structures of its kind in southern Italy. The column is a symbol of the city’s Roman heritage and stands in the center of the piazza. Aside from the historical significance, Piazza Sant’Oronzo is a fantastic spot to soak up the atmosphere of Lecce with lively street performers and local shops and cafes for browsing.

Piazza Sant’Oronzo has an unusual atmosphere with the ancient and the modern sitting together.
