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

Although ornate, this cathedral has mostly huge paintings that must have darkened with age. There is also a reliquary with an almost complete skeleton (notice the teeth) which we assumed was the named saint.

Lovely church in a small piazza. We went out of season and in the week so not too busy. We were able to sit quietly and contemplate without loads of people about. Nice little gist shops and café scattered around - all very welcoming

Like most others in Italy mornings are the most reliable times to visit. Evening opening tends to be not so regular. But normally open 7:30 to 13:00 then again later to 9:30 ish. But things can change with special ‘days’.
