If you see one church make it this one!
Oct. 2019 • Couples
St Agatha has that now familiar baroque facade, a warm biscuity hue in the afternoon sun. Sadly it’s such a squash in the via in which it is located that you can’t get a good front view of it!
Inside, it’s very dark and gloomy, and almost entirely covered in equally dark and gloomy paintings.
My partner thought it ‘amazing’, I thought it too sombre inside.
But it is THE church to see in Gallipoli.

Beautiful Church in Gallipoli
Sep. 2019
This church is a must see when visiting Gallipoli. It is filled with beautiful artwork on virtually every wall, including a moving portrait of Saint Agatha immediately before her martyrdom.

Gallipoli Cathedral
Sep. 2019
A truly awesome Cathedral built in the center of old town Gallipoli. It was a blessed experience to see such a wonderful structure and the workmanship applied to build a magnificent church.

Slap bang in the centre of the old town, the baroque facade is stunning. DArk paintings inside impressive, but overwhelming.

Great craftsmanship
Sep. 2018 • Couples
You have to admire the craftsmanship of the artists and sculptures of this impressive church. For he however the beauty is in the external part of the building. The interior is far too intense in its style moving it from beautiful and verging on the ugly.

Beautiful Basilica
Aug. 2018 • Couples
The way it shows up in the city center is dominant. Such a big and imponent building. The inside is beautiful. Classical architecture of religious buildings of Salento. Really worth a visit while you are lazing around the city

Beautiful baroque cathedral
Jun. 2018 • Couples
This is a beautiful baroque cathedral. The interior is reminiscent of the over-the-top baroque style of the churches in Lecce.
