Roman Amphitheatre of Lecce
Latest update: 26 February 2022
The Roman Amphitheatre of Lecce occupies the southern section of Piazza Sant'Oronzo in the centre of the magnificent city in Puglia. Although it dates back to the second century AD and the time of Emperor Hadrian's rule, it wasn't discovered until 1901.
It's possible to view the structure from the public square above; a curious sight with the incongruous modern buildings around it.
Built: 2nd century AD
Close by: Basilica di Santa Croce, Lecce Cathedral, Piazza Duomo
