Baroque Lecce is well known, but the 17th century is just a recent part of a long history. The city has been influenced by many ancient and important cultures: Messapians, Greeks, Byzantines, Normans, French Angevins and  Spanish Aragonese.

You are now about to start a journey through the streets and alleys of ancient Medieval Lecce, focusing on its Jewish community. In these evocative underground areas you will be taking a trip in time, discovering the remains of the old giudecca and its inhabitants.
