Lecce delights: Phenomenal villa at the Southern end of Italy
Lecce and Salento have a lot to offer as a location for your new villa
While in the 17th and 18th century, the great baroque cities of Italy were stylistically similar in their structures, Lecce is perhaps the largest exception of the country in this trend. The city was able to provide its architects with their own building materials by means of the regional tuft, which in return created a separate sub-style of baroque. The most magnificent example of this style is the basilica of Santa Croce, designed by Gabriele Riccardi. In contrast to the traditional Baroque style with its rounded edges and curved facades, straight lines and cross-shaped shapes predominate here, without losing any ease or skill. Even if the cityscape of Lecces is still characterized by its historical architecture, the city has far more to offer: proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, strong branches of tobacco and wine trade, and ideal transport connections by car, train and Lecce airport, which is only 50 kilometers away. The perfect real estate location for stylish individuals.
