A third report from our Apulian family holidays; first some words and pictures from Lecce, a historic city, with some still visible remains from Roman times…
… but especially rich in baroque architecture.
The cathedral has origins from the 12th century, but was completely restored during the 17th century.
We also visited the Castellana Caves – Grotte di Castellana (see top picture) during a more than two hour walk – 3,3 km (2 miles). The main enormous entrance cave, La Grave, has a hole on the top and the view from there (first picture below on the left) is impressive. The cave in its total length was discovered as late as 1938. It’s fascinating to admire all the stalactites, stalagmites… in all colours – all in a nice cool temperature.
